A woman who was found positive for coronavirus gave birth to a boy without the infection in eastern China’s Zhejiang province.
The infant was born at the Children’s Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine in Hangzhou and tested negative for the nucleic acid test related to coronavirus.
He will be tested again to confirm the lack of the infection at the facility.
However, not everyone has been this lucky. A few days ago, a boy was born to a 27-year-old woman identified as Xiaoyan at Wuhan Union Hospital on February 2, reported Reuters. The baby was safely delivered through the cesarean section, but unfortunately was found to be infected with the virus within 30 hours after being born.
Doctor Zhao Yin performed the surgery and stated the mother was suspected of being infected with the virus and her condition was near deterioration.
