2-days old Baguio Baby is COVID-19 and Abortion Victim

 |  2 min read

2-days old baby who passed away and tested positive for COVID-19 in Baguio City, allegedly tried by mother to abort.


Authorities are investigating a mother in Baguio City after she allegedly accidentally aborted her pregnancy, in which the baby passed away and tested positive for COVID-19.

Based on the police blotter, the said mother is 23-years-old, call center agent and resident of Poliwes Barangay, here in Baguio City.

According to the statement of the attending physician, the said mother was rushed to the Emergency Room of the OB-Gyne Ward of Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center (BGHMC) accompanied by her live-in partner after feeling abdominal pain.

According to the doctor, they thought it was the fullness of the said mother's labor.

However, while the doctor was conducting the internal examination, they discovered three tablets of medicine inside the private part of the said mother.

As a result, the doctor repeated the internal examination and there they discovered an additional three identical tablets of medicine.

According to the doctor, the pills they discovered and recovered were misoprostol.

Based on the information, misoprostol is used to start the labor of a pregnant woman, abortion, and medicine for the bleeding of the mother who has just given birth.

During the doctor's investigation, the said mother and her live-in partner allegedly admitted that they bought the tablets online for P5,700.

The doctor insisted that they did everything to prevent the mother from giving birth because the baby was premature at 27 weeks or more than six months.

However, she allows the mother to give birth to the baby to save the baby because the drugs used by the mother have already taken effect.

After giving birth, the couple was confined to the intensive care unit of the BGHMC but the baby died, two days after it was born.

The baby was subjected to a swab test and based on the results released yesterday (August 12), it was positive for COVID-19.

The said mother is staying at BGHMC while waiting for the results of her swab test.

Meanwhile, the BGHMC OB-Gyne Ward was temporarily closed for disinfection and contact tracing.
