Youngest victim of Coronavirus


A newborn is believed to be the youngest victim in the United Kingdom to have caught Coronavirus.
North Middlesex University Hospital said two patients had tested positive for Coronavirus, the disease caused by the coronavirus which has killed more than 5000 people worldwide.
The mother had been taken to hospital in London days before the baby's birth with suspected pneumonia and doctors said her positive results were only known after the baby was born.
Doctors are trying to establish whether the baby was infected during birth or whether it caught the virus in the womb.
The deadly virus has already claimed 5000 lives and has been declared pandemic from WHO can survive in the air for 3 hours scientists have found.

According to  US government researchers, who worked with other experts other than surviving in the air, it was revealed that the infection can live on surfaces for up to 3 days.
