Newborns In Thailand Get Tiny Face shields To Protect Them Against Coronavirus

Published on

A hospital in Thailand is going the extra mile to ensure that newborns from the hospital do not contract coronavirus on their way home.

On Thursday, Praram 9 Hospital in Bangkok, gave two newborn babies tiny face shields to help protect them from COVID-19 — the diseased caused by the novel coronavirus — while they traveled home from the hospital.

In a statement to TIME, the hospital said that they made the decision to provide the tiny face shields when the babies’ mother explained she would take a taxi or public transport to get home.

The hospital further adds that the handcrafted face shields were for a “unique case” just for the babies’ journey home from the hospital and are not usually given to all newborn babies in the hospital.

“The nurses worried about the babies’ well-being and they handcrafted the face shields,”

The statement said.

The photographs, which were taken through a glass window in the hospital’s maternity ward, show nurses and the mother also wearing masks around the newborns.
