A 17-day-old baby miraculously defeated the deadly Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) without having any antiviral medication for its symptoms.
KAMI learned that the baby girl was the youngest to overcome the disease in China.
In a report by the LADbible, the baby was born on February 5 at the Hubei Provincial People's Hospital Wuhan.
The child’s mother already had the COVID-19 the moment she gave birth to her baby. Four days later, the baby also contracted the deadly virus.
"Her heart was a bit weak, but we treated that. Because the novel coronavirus is new, it is not entirely clear how newborns are affected. We must also be very careful when administering antiviral drug to newborns,” Doctor Zeng Lingkong said.
"As her condition did not appear to significantly worsen, we did not prescribe any particular antiviral medicines. Her treatment was very successful. She had no breathing difficulties, fevers or coughing,” he added.
"She remained stable throughout the 16 days of treatment, and has now twice tested negative for the Covid-19. She meets the standards for discharge,” he continued.
The baby was reunited with her family on February 21. However, her mother remains in quarantine.
In a previous report by KAMI, a 4-month-old baby was discharged from a hospital in China after recovering from the COVID-19.
The deadly Corona Virus Disease 2019 was first reported in Wuhan, China. Over 2,000 deaths have been reported in China since the outbreak began.
