    GUWAHATI: At a stage when the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the city at its peak and as per government statistics there are almost 500 positive cases in the city every day, Marwari Hospitals has achieved a milestone by successfully delivering newborn babies from COVID-19 positive patients.

    Accordingly, the anxiety of being a COVID-19 positive case has almost put the expecting mothers and the family in a dilemma as most of the healthcare centres either do not prefer to operate or the charges are not affordable.

    “The first case was a normal delivery on 9th July, followed by a caesarean delivery on July 10. The trend of deliveries continued and till date, the team of medical experts have been successful enough in bringing a smile to the 4 expecting couples,” the Marwari Hospitals authority said on Saturday in an official statement.

    According to the statement, among the team of medical experts, it was noteworthy to mention about Dr Dipak Kalita and Dr Dipak Kumar Sarma, who took a remarkable lead in building the confidence among other professionals which boosted the morale of Dr Sweta Bhansali, another young and dynamic Consultant, associated with the hospital.

    “Appropriate care will be extended to the patient even in future. No patients should be refused treatment at this critical moment,” the statement further said and added that the management of Marwari Hospitals will start emergency general surgeries for COVID-19 positive patients within a day or two.

    Recently, a 3-day-old baby, born at the Silchar Medical College & Hospital (SMCH), was tested Covid-19 positive on July 24 and was probably the youngest Covid-19 positive child in the state so far. Earlier than this, another 5-month-old baby was also tested positive for Covid-19 in the SMCH.  

    Taking cognizance of the phenomenon, State’s health and family welfare minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday, in his tweeter handle said, “Please to share that a 40-bed dedicated Covid-19 hospital only for women and children at the Mahendra Mohan Choudhury Hospital (MMCH), here will get functional soon.”

    Sarma tweeted this after reviewing the ongoing work and facilities at the MMCH.
