A BABY boy born at the New Normal Oasis for Adaptation and a Home (Noah)
Complex at the South Road Properties in Cebu City now serves as a ray of hope for Covid-19 patients on isolation at the facility.
Noah Clynt was born on Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2020, after his mother, a Covid-19 patient, gave birth at the facility just after being transferred there for isolation.
Noah Clynt’s parents have been staying at the facility after they were found positive of Covid-19.
Noah Complex manager Jocelyn Pesquera said that after he was born, Noah Clynt was immediately swabbed. The results of the baby’s swab test have yet to be released.
The baby is still at the Noah Complex and is being closely monitored.
Pesquera said the quarantine facility has two delivery rooms and is equipped to handle normal deliveries.
She said Noah Clynt was the first baby born at the quarantine facility.
Pesquera said she found joy in Noah Clynt’s birth at the Noah Complex since he was born on her birthday.
Noah Complex is currently housing 64 Covid-19 patients.
Pesquera said 19 clinically recovered patients were discharged last Aug. 20.
As of August, 682 Covid-19 patients at the Noah Complex have recovered and released back to their communities.
She said that they had many patients last month but since the start of August, their patients eventually dwindled down.
“We will continue to accept patients. If we continue accepting patients, we help our hospitals lower their admission rates,” Pesquera said.
Noah Complex houses both asymptomatic and patients with mild symptoms of Covid-19.
The Noah complex has 300 beds.
Its expansion has also started to accommodate 1,000 more Covid-19 patients. / JJL,PAC
