A newborn born in Wuhan, China, tested positive for a coronavirus (2019-nCoV) infection or Corona virus after an examination.



Reportedly, the Corona virus infection test showed positive results 30 hours after the baby was born. This finding increases alertness in utero transmission.

"The mother of a newborn baby is confirmed to be a Corona virus patient. Currently, the baby's vital signs are stable," said a news report on CCTV as quoted by the South China Morning Post on Thursday (02/06/2020).

"We must pay more attention to the possibility of a new transmission route of the Corona virus ," said Zeng Lingkong, a senior doctor in the Wuhan Children's Hospital Neonatal Department, as quoted by Fox News.

Cannot Be Confirmed
It is known, this baby was born on February 2, 2020 ago. He did not have a fever or cough, but experienced shortness of breath. Chest examination shows signs of infection and abnormal liver conditions.

Zeng said, this finding is a sign that pregnant women should stay away from infected patients. At present, the baby is under treatment.

Even so, it is uncertain whether the Corona virus infection can be contagious in the womb. Experts from the West say, this conclusion is still in the form of speculation.

"As far as I know at this time, there is no evidence that the Corona virus can only be transmitted in the womb," said professor of medicine Paul Hunter, from the University of East Anglia, England, as quoted by The Guardian.

"If a baby is infected with the Corona virus a few days after birth, we cannot be certain whether the baby is infected in the womb or during birth," he said.

Reported by the South China Morning Post, until Wednesday, February 5, 2020 local time, 28,262 confirmed cases of Coronavirus novel infections with 565 deaths and 911 were recovered.
