“We got an order from the state government to start an exclusive maternity COVID-19 centre on March 27 this year. Since then, we have admitted 564 cases of coronavirus. We have successfully completed 300 deliveries till today. From these, normal deliveries conducted are 141 while cesarean sections are 159. As many as seven babies tested positive for the virus from these 300 deliveries,” said Dr Tulasidevi.
She further said, “Total maternal deaths reported by the hospital are 28. Six abortions have also been conducted at the hospital. In order to prevent the transmission of the infection from the mother to the babies, we have provided precautionary measures to the mothers which include face mask, and hand sanitizers and given instructions to the mother to wash her hands, with soap and water and sanitise the hands before feeding the baby. I am very proud about the achievement of the hospital.”
