A second woman with coronavirus has given birth at Makarios Hospital and both mother and baby are doing well, Phileleftheros reports.
It said that this is the second time that Makarios Hospital had activated protocols and proceeded with a C-section on a woman who had tested positive for coronavirus.
The baby boy was born on Sunday. The woman was referred to Makarios Hospital from her private clinic because she had tested positive for coronavirus.
