In South Africa, a two-day-old baby died who had the coronavirus. The child was born prematurely and was, therefore, struggling with lung problems, said Health Minister Zweli Mkhize.
It is rare for babies who become infected with the virus to die. The mother of the deceased child was also a corona patient.
The death toll from the coronavirus outbreak in South Africa stands at 339.
The authorities have diagnosed more than 18,000 people with the virus.
