According to the BBC, this is an unprecedented event. Premature babies were born by cesarean section. A girl and one of the boys are in a stable condition in a hospital in the state of San Luis Potosi.
Another boy is undergoing treatment – he has symptoms of a respiratory illness. However, doctors believe that the child has a good chance of recovery.
Doctors are trying to determine if COVID-19 could be transmitted through the mother’s placenta during pregnancy. The woman has no symptoms, although her test also showed a positive result.
Parents, children, and medical staff in contact with the woman in labor are placed in isolation.
