A Chinese newborn has been diagnosed with the new coronavirus just 30 hours after birth, the youngest case recorded so far.
The baby’s mother reportedly tested positive before she gave birth on Feb. 2 in Wuhan — the epicenter of the virus, the BBC reported, citing state media.
The baby’s mother tested positive before she gave birth. It is unclear how the disease was transmitted – in the womb, or after birth.
Only a handful of children have come down with the virus, which has killed 563 people and infected 28,018.
State media outlet Xinhua reported news of the infection late on Wednesday.
It added that the baby, which weighed 3.25kg at birth (7lbs 2oz), was now in stable condition and under observation.
