At 8:00 a.m. on February 2, Chen, 40 weeks pregnant and suspected of new crown infection, was pushed into the operating room. Under strict three-level protection, doctors of Tongji Hospital immediately performed cesarean section for her. Her mother and child were safe.
Professor Feng Ling, the director of Obstetrics, said that Ms. Chens CT images clearly indicated viral pneumonia. The hospital immediately put her in the isolation ward, and the experts from the infection department and obstetrics and Gynecology decided to carry out cesarean section as soon as possible.
The Department of Obstetrics, anesthesiology, operating room and neonatology of the hospital moved rapidly and successfully performed cesarean section under strict three-level protection. After the operation, the mother was sent back to the isolation ward for further treatment, and baby Lele (pseudonym) was immediately sent to the neonatal isolation ward for observation.
Professor Chen Ling, director of Neonatology, said that Lele weighed 3.25kg at birth, with a birth score of 8-9 and no dyspnea. After birth, Lele breathed steadily. Without oxygen, the blood oxygen saturation was normal. But considering that mother is a suspected case of new coronavirus infection, we cant relax. We have to wait for the result of her throat swab nucleic acid test.
Soon, Ms. Chen pharyngeal swab nucleic acid test results out, is positive! The hospital immediately carried out throat swab nucleic acid test for Lele, which was also confirmed to be positive. Lele became the youngest new type of coronavirus infected person in the world.
Because of the changes in the immune system and lung function during pregnancy, pregnant women are more likely to be infected with the new coronavirus than others, Feng Ling said. And pregnant women are usually more seriously ill and progress faster, especially in the middle and late pregnancy.
According to Professor Chen Ling, pregnant women with confirmed or suspected infection of new coronavirus have the risk of mother to child vertical transmission. After the birth of the newborn, they should be immediately isolated, observed, diagnosed and treated according to the new coronavirus infection, and tested for nucleic acid. Breast feeding is not allowed for the time being.
It is reported that medical staff continue to closely observe the changes of Leles condition and various physical parameters.
We need to know that the minimum case of new crown pneumonia is only one month
On February 2, the National Health Commission issued the notice on prevention and control of pneumonia caused by new coronavirus infection in children and pregnant women, which clearly pointed out that children are susceptible to pneumonia caused by new coronavirus infection.
