- Doctors said that the virus is not transferred via the placenta, which was why the baby tested negative for COVID-19

Amidst the pandemic, a ray of hope will always shine. KAMI learned that a mother infected with COVID-19 successfully gave birth to a healthy baby in Greece.
In Philstar's report, the mother had a cesarean operation where the doctors had to wear three pairs of gloves, masks and protective glasses.
Both the 24-year-old mom and her partner tested positive for the virus as per the Greek Reporter.
As per a doctor from the Attikon Hospital, where the mother gave birth, the virus is not transmitted via the placenta.
So even if the mother is a COVID-19 case, her baby would be born coronavirus free for as long as there would be no contact between them.
Deccan Herald reported that for 14 days, the mom had to go into self-isolation before she would be able to hold her baby.
The World Health Organization has established that the virus can be transmitted via airborne droplets.
For the doctors who did the operation, they said that it was an entirely unique experience.
In a previous KAMI report, a newborn was infected with the coronavirus. It was not ascertained however how the baby got infected.
The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
