The internet is giving praises to God after a baby whose mother tested positive for Covid-19 and was delivered through caesarean section tested negative of the deadly virus at the Apinto Government Hospital in the Tarkwa Nsuaem Municipality in the Western Region of Ghana.
Confirming the negative status of the baby, Dr Darko said: “About two weeks ago we did successfully operate and deliver a confirmed Covid-19 expectant mum of a very handsome baby boy and soon afterwards we took the sample of the baby and sent to the lab to be tested for SARSCov2.”
We understand the health personnel are waiting for the mother to fully recover so they can run and new test on her to see if she’s still positive.
“The good news is the result came in this morning and the baby tested negative for SARSCov2. The better news is that even the mum’s sample that was taken a couple of days after the surgery and was sent for re-testing also came out as negative.
We are awaiting a second sample that was taken some days back to also test negative so that we can declare the mum as having fully recovered from Covid-19,” Dr Darko told Citi FM’s Western Regional correspondent.
