Baby from Brazil defeats Coronavirus
The baby may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus during a visit to a relative’s home. Andrade and his wife, Viviane Monteiro, say it was a “miracle” that Dom recovered. Dom will celebrate his 6-month birthday on June 14 at home with his parents, surrounded virtually by relatives. Research studies show the effect of the virus on newborn babies.
In the last week, Latin America has become the epicenter of the global pandemic. With more than 500,000 confirmed cases of the virus and 27,878 deaths, Brazil is the hardest-hit country in the region. The country has reported at least 25 coronavirus-related deaths among babies up to 12 months of age. According to WHO, Coronavirus does not have any role with specific age groups. It can infect anyone and everyone.
Brazil is currently fighting hard against the pandemic. It is miraculous to see such a young fight against the virus bravely and come out victorious. Let us know what you have to say about this in the comments section below!
