Zach Leviton Death & Cause
Her mother told CBS 2 by phone that the symptoms were mild and that there were no apparent signs of COVID-19. But the days went by and Zach got worse last Monday, with limp limbs and mild difficulty breathing. He was rushed to the hospital last week for a COVID-19 test. But his mother said it came back negative, and the teenager died after being on a fan. She said her doctor told her there was no conclusive cause of death, but that Zach had cardiac complications and that he may have been suffering from the early stages of the virus.
Zach’s mother is now worried about the tests and how the virus appears in young people. COVID-19 generally attacks the respiratory systems of people with underlying conditions, especially the elderly. But recent medical reports have emerged suggesting that the heart may also be affected. And with a mystery surrounding Zach’s death, Arlington Heights-based Township School District 214 has raised the alarm for other parents.
“It is my unfortunate responsibility to inform you of the passing of one of our students this week, likely due to complications related to COVID-19,” Superintendent David R. Schuler said in a letter to parents.
Schuler also wrote that another student is currently in intensive care due to COVID-19. He did not specify which school that student attended.
“Our student services staff is working with family and friends to provide support during this tragic time,” Schuler wrote.
The superintendent also urged the school community to continue social distancing.
“While we may be seeing a plateau in confirmed cases and deaths related to COVID-19 in Illinois, this is a dark week in District 214 that leaves me with an incredibly heavy heart,” he wrote. “During this dark and painful week in D214, I would implore you to please follow the Governor’s stay-at-home order, wash your hands and practice social distancing.”
