Assam: COVID infected lady gives birth to twins at AMCH

Guwahati: A COVID-19 positive woman gave birth to twins at Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH) in Dibrugarh on Friday.

The babies were conceived through IVF (Precious Pregnancy) and delivered by caesarean section procedure by AMCH’s COVID-19 obstetrician-gynaecologist team.

Extremely proud of the @AMCHDibrugarh doctors and nursing team for the successful delivery.”
