Gadag: In a heart-wrenching situation, a mother was not fortunate enough to hear her new-born’s first cry or see the infant as she has been receiving COVID-19 treatment in Gadag. A pregnant woman admitted in JIMS Hospital in Gadag gave birth and was immediately shifted to an isolation ward as she is COVID-19 positive. More unfortunate was that the neither the father of the infant nor family members visited the child fearing they would contract the deadly virus. The infant is being treated at the neonatal centre in the hospital and the authorities are awaiting COVID test reports of the infant.
