A Chinese newborn has been diagnosed with the new Coronavirus just 30 hours after birth, the youngest case recorded so far.

The baby was born on February 2 in Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus.

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 565 people and infected 28,018.

All but one of the deaths were in China.
