A Baby has today tested positive for the Covid-19 at a hospital in Norfolk and is now in isolation with other patients.

The baby and two other patients has already been separated by medics at James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston.

A hospital spokesman said: ‘An extensive ”contact tracing” exercise is now under way by Public Health England to trace anyone who might have had close (face-to-face) contact.

‘Close contacts will be given health advice about symptoms and what to do if they become unwell in the 14 days after they had contact with the confirmed case.’
