Close monitoring was done for four days. Finally, when his condition improved, we decided to discharge him,” she added.

The hospital has seen 3-5 small babies in the past two weeks who had Covid-19. However, Chadda explained, “Since they present mild symptoms, we advise home isolation. Hospitalisation is not required unless the baby has an underlying medical condition.”
