If a child or an infant’s heart stops and you’re worried that they may have COVID-19, you can still help.

Moreover, see the steps here.

Make sure the scene is safe.

Furthermore, Check to see if the child or infant is awake and breathing normally.

Meanwhile, If you’re alone,phone 9-1-1 from a cell phone, perform CPR with 30 compressions and then 2 breaths

(if you’re willing and able) for 5 cycles, and get an AED.
