A 31-year-old woman infected with the coronavirus gave birth to a healthy baby in Athens on Monday afternoon.
The new mother, who had exhibited the typical coronavirus symptoms of cough and high fever, tested positive for COVID-19.
She was subsequently rushed to Attikon hospital in Athens, where she had an emergency cesarean section.
According to media reports, the woman gave birth to a baby weighing 3.5 kilograms, who was tested and has been found to be in excellent health.
Both mother and infant remain in hospital under observation.
Last week, another 24-year-old woman infected with the coronavirus gave birth to a baby who also was not infected.
