A Chinese baby boy has been born inside a corona virus quarantine zone with both his parents feared to carry the deadly disease.
Medics dressed in hazmat suits have delivered the 7lb 192 oz boy at Wuhan Union Hospital on Saturday.
The Wuhan hospital’s isolation unit, inside the quarantined Hubei province, is the designated national location for pregnant coronavirus patients.
As a result, medics such as Doctor Song have been sent from numerous other provinces to assist with the influx of people.
The new mother has been held in isolation as a suspected carrier of the deadly virus, while her husband remains in quarantine after he was diagnosed.
Pictures from inside Wuhan Union Hospital, one of the facilities on the front line of the viral outbreak in Central China’s Hubei Province, show the newborn boy in the arms of Doctor Song Bo.
The doctor said: “The child is healthy and everyone is very happy,” explaining the baby boy would be transferred to Wuhan Children’s Hospital for further tests.
He added: “As a father-of-two myself, it’s been tough being on the front line day and night, but we’re all so excited to see this new life.”
“I believe we will win the fight against this disease.”
