Every cloud has a silver lining, including the colossal cloud of gloom and worry that has hung over almost every hospital across Mumbai, in the form of the rising number of coronavirus cases. On Sunday, it was the BYL Nair Hospital, Mumbai Central which was the bearer of some really glad tidings, claiming 300-plus 'safe' births of babies born to Covid-positive mothers.
According to protocol, babies born to mothers infected with Covid are tested for infection 24 hours after birth. Of the 306 infants born in the last two months, 10 new-borns had tested positive.
