The tiny baby is the world’s youngest patient.
The child’s mother had been rushed to a London hospital days earlier with suspected pneumonia.
Last night she and her baby were being treated at separate hospitals.
The mum was tested at North Middlesex Hospital but her positive result was known only after the birth.
The baby was tested within minutes of arrival.
