A woman infected with the novel coronavirus pneumonia gave birth to a boy with no infection in east China's Zhejiang Province Saturday.

The infant, whose first nucleic acid test associated with the novel coronavirus was negative, is receiving intensive care and will be tested again in the next few days to confirm the absence of the virus at the Children's Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine in Hangzhou, capital of the province.

"We make full preparations after the pregnant woman arrived," said Wang Ying, head nurse of the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University that was in charge of the delivery.
