HÀ NỘI — A woman gave birth to twins in a quarantined room in Quảng Ninh Hospital for Obstetrics and Pediatrics, the northeastern province of Quảng Ninh, on Wednesday.
The two infants, weighing 2.8kg and 2.6kg, respectively, were born after a 20-minute caesarean section. Currently, the health of mother and two infants are stable.
The woman was hospitalised on Tuesday with symptoms of abdominal pain. Doctors prepared a quarantined room for her after she told them she returned to the province from an area affected by COVID-19.
Trần Thị Minh Lý, deputy director of the hospital, said the mother and two children would continue being quarantined in the hospital. They would be allowed to go home after 14 days. — VNS
