Tips on How to Conceive a Baby Boy
It was revealed over the weekend that a newborn baby has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United Kingdom. The baby’s mother was taken to a North London hospital days before the birth for suspected pneumonia. Her COVID-19 results came through as positive after the baby was born, while the baby was tested minutes after delivery.
It is unknown at this stage whether the child contracted the disease in the womb or became infected during birth, but health officials are urgently trying to find out the circumstances behind the infection. It has been reported that the baby is being treated in the hospital, and the mother has been transferred to a specialist infections hospital to prevent further spread of the disease. Staff who were in close contact with the mother and baby have been advised to self-isolate.
Chief Medical Officer for England, Professor Chris Whitty, has previously stated that pregnant women should not start worrying about COVID-19.
