Two Sydney mums have been charged after a bizarre online spat over the coronavirus allegedly ended in a wild brawl. 

The women, aged 33 and 36, from the city’s northern beaches, were charged with affray on Monday, almost a week after both were hospitalised for their injuries.  

The mothers were allegedly discussing the deadly disease in an online group chat on Tuesday, when one woman, from Dee Why, visited the other’s home in Brookvale.

Tensions boiled over and the pair allegedly then came to blows, with police and paramedics called about 8pm. 

One of the two women involved has claimed she had criticised the other woman for not going into quarantine after returning from Wuhan, China. 

Wuhan is the epicentre of the fatal illness, which has killed more than 360 people and infected 12 Australians.  

Two women accompanying the mothers – also from the group chat – tried to separate the pair.

Police and an ambulance were called and both the women were taken to hospital for their injuries.

The older woman suffered a head injury – requiring a brain scan – as well as a shoulder injury and a cut to her arm. 

The younger woman suffered a sore shoulder and other ‘non-life threatening injuries’. 

Both women have since been released from hospital. 

The pair will face court on March 25.
