Chennai: Even as more COVID-19 cases are reported daily in Tamil Nadu, coming in as a ray of hope is the recovery of a 10-month-old baby who tested positive for COVID-19 on March 29 in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. The male infant has now been discharged from the hospital, eight days after his diagnosis, on April 6. The 10-month-old baby is among the five COVID-19 patients who have been discharged from ESI Hospital in Coimbatore on Monday.

According to reports, the baby’s mother, who is a doctor, the baby’s grandmother, their domestic help, and a 25-year-old student are among those who have been discharged. This increases the number of recovered patients in the state to 12.

The 10-month-old baby was the state’s 45th patient who had contracted the disease from patient 43, a 29-year-old woman who came in contact with patient 26. Patient 26 is the 63-year-old man who travelled along with two Thai nationals (patients 5 and 6) and is under isolation at IRT Perundurai Medical College (IRTPMC), Perundurai.

Tamil Nadu reported 50 new cases on April 6 and the state currently has a total of 621 COVID-19 cases. The state has recorded six COVID-19 deaths so far, the latest being a 57-year-old woman, reported on Monday. Health Secretary Beela Rajesh shared that the woman had admitted herself to Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital on April 5 for respiratory illness, and passed away early on April 6. Her COVID-19 test result returned positive later the same day.

The first child to have contracted COVID-19 in India was from Kerala. Early March, a three-year-old child of a family who travelled to Kochi from Italy via Dubai tested positive for COVID-19. The child, along with his parents, has since recovered.
