Mothers’ Day in Covid-19 times

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Sara (L), a nurse at the neonatal care unit of the CHR Sambre et Meuse hospital, attends to a young mother (R) suspected of being infected with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes the pandemic COVID-19 disease and her three-month-old baby, in Namur, Belgium, 28 April 2020.

The mother was unable to see her premature newborn child, who weighed less than 1 kilo (2.2 pounds) at the time of birth, for two weeks after being diagnosed with a possible coronavirus infection. After an excruciating 14-day separation, today was the first day she has been allowed to hold her child again.
