A 7-year-old boy has been admitted to Son Espases Hospital with suspected coronavirus.

The child has tested positive for flu and told doctors he had close contact with the English family who are already in isolation units at the hospital.

The symptoms for flu and coronavirus are very similar, so to be on the safe side, biological samples are being taken from the boy and sent to Madrid for analysis to find out if he has the disease.
