The cute gestures of the little baby couldn’t stop the nurse to go and interact with her.”This baby girl is very active and is asymptomatic. At that time she was not sleeping and was playing. It was around 11.30 pm when I found her standing on the bed. Her mother was also around. I could not stop myself as she is very small and pretty, “said Narendra Tyagi who is currently posted at the Covid-19 ward of PGI Chandigarh.
The toddler’s family lives in sector 30, Chandigarh. All her family members except her mother were tested positive for Covid-19. While other family members have been discharged, the toddler is still in the hospital.
