Newborn in London tests positive for coronavirus
A newborn has tested positive for coronavirus in the UK, making the baby possibly one of the youngest cases in the country, UK's local media reported.
The child's mother, who was taken to a north London hospital days before the birth with suspected pneumonia, has also caught the virus, according to The Guardian.
The NHS Trust confirmed that two patients tested positive for coronavirus and also requested staff who were in close contact with them during the treatment to self-isolate.
It is not yet known whether the child contracted the disease in the womb or was infected during birth. The Sun, which first revealed the case, reported that the baby was still being treated at the hospital but the mother has been transferred to a specialist infections hospital, reports The Guardian.
