A 40-year-old woman, who tested positive for the coronavirus, gave birth to a baby girl at a hospital in Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos, the hospital said on Monday.
The baby girl was born at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).
In a Twitter post, the hospital said both mother and the baby “are doing fine.”
