A newborn in London has reportedly been diagnosed with the novel corona virus, which has become the latest confirmed case of a global pandemic, according to a media report.
The child's mother was reportedly taken to North Middlesex Hospital, Enfield, days earlier, with suspected pneumonia, the Metro newspaper said in the report on Friday.
It is believed that she only found out about her diagnosis immediately after birth. The newborn was believed to be tested within minutes of its birth.
Doctors try to determine how the baby got the infection – either in the womb or during childbirth.
The mother was now treated in a special facility while her child was transferred to another hospital.
On Saturday, the number of coronavirus cases in the UK was 798 with 10 deaths.
