Raipur. Hearing the name of Corona Virus, people are afraid of hearing where the whole world is fighting against the threat of Corona virus. At the same time, a couple from Chhattisgarh named their twins born between lockdown as ‘Corona’ and ‘Kovid’.
On 27 March, a woman gave birth to twins at Ambedkar Hospital. One of which is a boy and the other a girl. To reduce the panic of the corona virus from people’s minds, they named the children Corona and Kovid. He said the names would remind him of the difficulties encountered during the lockdown.
However, the family said they could rename their children later. Preeti, a 27-year-old mother of newborns, said that I have received the blessings of twins. My husband and I wanted to memorialize the difficulties encountered during delivery due to the lockdown. So we named the boy Kovid and the girl named Corona.
Pui troubles due to lockdown
Originally from Uttar Pradesh, the couple lives in a rented house in Purani Basti area of the state capital. Preeti said that on the late night of March 26, I suddenly had severe pain and somehow my husband arranged for an ambulance operated under 102 Mahtari Express service. Traffic was not allowed on the roads due to the lockdown. Police stopped us at many places, but they let us go, seeing my condition. I was wondering what would happen in the hospital at midnight, but luckily the doctors and other staff were very supportive. My relatives also could not reach the hospital because of the lockdown.
Hotspots in the hospital
The twins were born at Dr. BR Ambedkar Memorial Hospital. Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the hospital, Shubhra Singh said that the mother and newborns were recently discharged and are in health. He said that as soon as Verma reached the hospital with her husband, arrangements were made to have her Caesarean as it was a complicated matter. He was successfully delivered within 45 minutes of his arrival. Singh said that the twins had become centers of attraction in the hospital because of Kovid and Corona’s name.
