Coronavirus: Couple Names Twins Corona And COVID by Peboy200: 5:50pm On Apr 05, 2020
A couple in India called their newborn twins Corona and COVID after being delivered during the ongoing lockdown of coronavirus at the region.

After arriving in the middle of a pandemic, couple calls twins Corona and COVID “The delivery happened after many difficulties and therefore my husband and I wanted to make the day memorable,” Preeti Verma, the 27-year-old mother, told the Indian Press Trust

Preeti and Vinay Verma hope the names would remind their children of the struggles that they face during the lockdown as they grow up. And, possibly, a victory over adversity for the children.


Last week in the state of Chhattisgarh, the healthy twins — a boy and a girl — were born at a government hospital.

The lockdown in India, which started on 24 March, has resulted in the suspension of train and airline service, essentially keeping 1.3 billion Indians at home for all but important trips to cities, such as food markets or pharmacies.

India has 2,909 confirmed countrywide cases of coronavirus including 68 deaths.

Compared with the United States, Italy and China, the total number of reported cases in India is low, but health experts warn India could be weeks away from a major increase that could overwhelm its already stressed public health system.
