A newborn baby has tested positive for COVID-19 at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston in Norfolk, the trust has said.

Two other positive cases have been identified at the hospital and all three were already being treated in isolation.

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."
