A baby in South Australia has been diagnosed with coronavirus after its mum first came down with the illness.

SA Health announced the baby and another new case this afternoon, taking the total number of cases for the state to seven, according to news.com.au.

The baby belongs to a 40-year-old woman who was also diagnosed with the virus after just returning from Iran.

SA Health say the mum and baby are "doing well" in hospital.


The other case is in a 58-year-old man, who arrived from Taiwan on March 3, at Flinders Medical Centre.
