Queensland Health has confirmed that there has been a third novel coronavirus case confirmed in that state.

An eight year old boy, a Chinese national from Wuhan (Hubei Province), has been confirmed to have novel coronavirus.

The child is a member of the tour group travelling with the 44 year old man and a 42 year old woman confirmed with coronavirus on 29 January and 30 January 2020.

The child remains in isolation at the Gold Coast University Hospital and is currently stable.

Further information is to be provided by the Chief Health Officer today.

The child is now the 13th person in Australia to be infected with the virus — there are four cases in NSW and Victoria and two cases in South Australia to go with the three in Queensland.

The boy is the first child to be diagnosed with the virus in Australia and the youngest by far, with other confirmed cases mostly occurring in people older than 30.

Two more Australians in China have also been infected with the virus.
