The Chairman Medical Advisory Committee of the hospital, Prof. Wasiu Adeyemo said the newborn was doing well but her sample would be taken for a test soon, the Punch reports.
The chance of the baby being COVID-19 is unlikely but we have to take her sample for testing, but she is doing well. The baby is going to be with her mother in a separate ward and room in our isolation centre.
