Two children born during Corona Virus pandemic have been named Corona and Covid. The pandemic caused by a new virus may have brought the world to its knees, but that has not deterred a Chhattisgarh couple to name their newborn twins by the two names of Corona Virus.
The two words may evoke fear in the minds of others, but for the Raipur-based couple they symbolise triumph over hardships as the twins – a boy and a girl – were born during the ongoing coronavirus-enforced nationwide lockdown which has disrupted normal life.
The names, they said, would remind them about all the hardships they conquered amid the lockdown, ahead of a successful delivery on the intervening night of March 26-27 at a government hospital here.
However, the couple said they might change their decision later and rename their kids.
“I was blessed with the twins – a boy and a girl – in the early hours on March 27. We have named them Covid (boy) and Corona (girl) for now,” Preeti Verma, the 27-old mother of the newborns.
