37-year-old COVID-19 patient gives birth at LUTH

A 37-year-old woman diagnosed with coronavirus has been delivered of a baby boy at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba.

The hospital made this known in a press statement on Tuesday.

According to the statement, the COVID-19 patient was delivered of the baby boy on Saturday.

The statement read, “A team of LUTH doctors, anaesthetists and nurses delivered another woman diagnosed with COVID-19 of a baby boy (Birth weight: 2.6kg).

“The 37-year-old mother was delivered of the baby via a caesarean section on Saturday, May 9.

“The mother and baby are doing well.

“We celebrate our committed frontline staff for this achievement.”

This birth is coming in the midst of increasing cases of coronavirus in Lagos.

As of May 11, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control said Lagos had recorded 1,933 confirmed cases of COVID-19, out of which 1,398 are active cases. Lagos has also recorded 502 recoveries and 33 deaths.
