An Indian couple have named their newborn twins Corona and Covid as they were born during the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the couple, the name would remind them about all the hardships they conquered amid the lockdown, ahead of a successful delivery on March 26-27 at a government hospital in Raipur, India Today reports.
YEN.com.gh gathers that the couple said they may change their decision later and rename their kids.
The mother of the twins identified as Preeti Verma said she had her baby after several difficulties prior to the delivery.
The 27-year-old woman said: "I was blessed with the twins - a boy and a girl - in the early hours on March 27. We have named them Covid (boy) and Corona (girl) for now."
In other news, a 12-year-old Ghanaian indigene resident in Belgium has reportedly died of the coronavirus after she was sent home from the hospital.
She is the youngest person to have died of coronavirus in the country.
Thesun.co.uk also reports that the 12-year-old girl who died of coronavirus in Belgium was reportedly sent home by a doctor who thought she was having an allergic reaction.
She had fever and doctors gave her medication to address it, and a GP told her mother that the coronavirus "seemed out of the question" as a possible cause.
