The Hidalgo Health Secretariat confirmed that a three-year-old minor suspected of acute hepatitis died at the La Raza hospital in Mexico City.
The health authorities are awaiting the results of the tests carried out by the INDRE to determine if it was indeed a case of atypical acute hepatitis.
So far, Pachuca reports four suspected cases of this disease of unknown origin.
The minor, from Tulancingo, Hidalgo, was transferred to CDMX to wait for a transplant because his condition progressed rapidly and led to liver failure.
