Woman gives birth outside closed health center in Cagayan de Oro


A woman on Saturday gave birth outside a closed health center in Barangay Nazareth, Cagayan de Oro City, according to Pia Arcangel’s report on “24 Oras Weekend.”

However, they did not know that it was closed after a nurse tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

As she could no longer transfer to a maternity clinic, she gave birth outside the health center. She was helped by a doctor who lived nearby.

The newborn was in a healthy condition.

Mother and child were brought to another health center to recover. — Joahna Lei Casilao/DVM, GMA News
