Ten newborn babies have reportedly caught coronavirus (COVID-19) from infected medical staff at a local hospital in Romania.

The hospital in the Romanian city of Timisoara is under investigation by authorities after the babies tested positive for the virus, according to media reports.
All but one of the babies are now in isolation with their parents at home, according to Health Minister Nelu Tataru.
It comes after another hospital in the country was forced into quarantine due to a large number of infected staff. A total of 5,202 COVID-19 cases were recorded in Romania. In the last 24 hours, 441 new cases were recorded.
