India is currently dealing with a devastating second Covid-19 wave that has swept through the nation, crushing the country's health infrastructure and overburdening frontline medical workers. The number of coronavirus cases in the country is increasing day by day.
Doctors and health workers are becoming angels for citizens as the covid case in the country continue to surge. All the medical staff who have been in the frontline service for the past year have been working hard in times of crisis.
There is a positive news coming in from Mumbai. So far, 1,000 pregnant women infected with corona have successfully delivered babies at Nair Hospital in Mumbai. Nair Hospital has become the first hospital in the country to successfully conduct deliveries of large number of pregnant women infected by corona.
Nair Hospital at Mumbai Central is a municipal hospital and has been a major contributor to in battling the covid pandemic. So far, 1,022 pregnant women with corona have given birth at Nair Hospital during the Corona period. It also includes 19 twins and triplets.
The gynaecology department at Nair Hospital has been working tirelessly for the last one year. Five days ago, it was decided to dedicate Nair Hospital entirely to covid patients. In the second wave of corona, an alternate labour room in the adjoining building was set up for Covid-positive months. Soon, though, the hospital realised they would require not one but two labour rooms, the second one for suspect mothers. In the months that followed, the hospital delivered women who travelled all the way from Vasai, Virar, Palghar, Raigad and some even from affluent families with private hospitals shutting the door on many.
