While the coronavirus pandemic is instilling fear in some people’s minds, a Raipur-based couple have found a way to remember this ongoing pandemic forever.
Born During Lockdown, Raipur Twins Named “Corona” And “Covid” https://t.co/toOkwvQb20— NDTV News feed (@ndtvfeed) April 3, 2020
The names would remind them about all the hardships they conquered amid the lockdown, ahead of a successful delivery on the intervening night of March 26-27 at a government hospital in Raipur.
The delivery happened after facing several difficulties and therefore, my husband and I wanted to make the day memorable. Thus, we thought about these names. When the hospital staff also started calling the babies as Corona and Covid, we finally decided to name them after the pandemic.
Naturally, some netizens were shocked to hear this news, while others suggested better names. Take a look.
