Lucknow: A 2.5-year-old child, admitted to King George’s Medical University (KGMU) in Lucknow on Monday (April 6), was discharged from the hospital after testing negative for novel coronavirus.
Doctors said that the baby boy, who recovered from the infection in less than a week, is ‘healthy’.
The toddler got the virus from his mother, who had a travel history to Canada and tested positive for COVID-19 on March 11. She was the first coronavirus case of the state capital.
Her mother, also a doctor, as a special case was given permission to stay with the child in the isolation ward after she recovered from the illness.
While the woman’s husband tested negative, her in-laws are still undergoing treatment after having tested positive for the virus.
A junior doctor, who was treating the woman, has also tested positive for COVID-19 and is under observation at KGMU.
