The medical test which confirmed that the baby who was born on February 2 in Wuhan is infected with the virus, has led to speculation that the lethal illness could potentially be passed from a mother to a fetus as the baby's mother tested positive to the virus before giving birth.  

The baby weighed 3.25kg at birth (7lbs 2oz) and is now in a stable condition and under observation. 

Dr Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston who also developed a vaccine for Sars (another coronavirus which spread in China in 2003), said there is more to know about the virus.
