Mumbai , April , 7 : In a rare feat, a Navi Mumbai municipal hospital managed a spectacular medical feat on Monday afternoon. A pregnant woman suffering from coronavirus was operated upon and delivered her baby.
The Navi Mumbai hospital is a First Referral Unit at Ghansoli.
The doctors team received a patient who was full-term pregnant and was tested and found to be coronavirus positive on Sunday evening.
The doctors were in a fix as they did not want to immediately start treating the woman for Covid-19 as this could adversely affect the foetus .
Since the patient did need to be medicated, the doctors took the risk and conducted a c-section operation.
The mother resides in Mumbai but had travelled to Navi Mumbai before the lockdown as her parents live there.
She successfully delivered a girl child on Monday afternoon.
The baby girl was immediately put in the baby box and is said to be doing fine. The child too is being tested to find out if she too has been infected by the coronavirus.
The woman in the meantime has been given medicines for the treatment of Covid-19 and she is responding well.
