Another baby, this time a 10-day-old girl, from Barangay Tipakan in Batangas tested positive for the novel coronavirus as Mayor Eric Africa said on Monday (April 13).

Health authorities are conducting contact tracing for persons who possibly had history of exposure to the baby patient. Her mother, however, tested negative for the disease. The infant is the second baby infected by the novel coronavirus in the city next after a 23-day-old male baby who died and tested positive  for COVID-19 after.
