Forty-six surrogate newborns are stranded in a dormitory at a hotel in Ukraine as the COVID-19 lockdown has stopped their parents from taking them home.
According to Mirror, their parents are in the UK, USA, Italy, Spain, France, Israel, Germany, China, Mexico, Romania and other countries.
YEN.com.gh gathers that their parents have paid between £5,745 (2,732,782.19) and £57,365 for services from BioTexCom, an organisation that assisted them with starting families.
The babies are being cared for by staff at a so-called 'baby factory' due to the pandemic causing countries to close its borders.
An administrator called Marina said: “Dear parents! My name is Marina, I'm an administrator of the Venice Hotel.
“Our baby sitters take care of your babies 24 hours a day in a baby room.
"Every day they spend some time with the children in the open air and bathe them.”
