A COVID-19 patient, designated as MC-518 and a newborn, has been declared as recovered by the City of Mati Incident Management Team Wednesday, March 31, 2021.

The baby was only three days old when she was confirmed to have Covid-19.

The baby and her mother, MC-515, are, however, asymptomatic and were readily isolated at the Alternate Care Site.

The mother is a close contact of her husband, MC-507, who was symptomatic.

MC-515 was already in isolation when she was rushed to the Davao Oriental Provincial Medical Center on March 21 to give birth to MC-518.

Immediately after giving birth, the mother and daughter were isolated at the Alternate Care Site in Milagrosa.

The father has already recovered last March 28.

MC-518 is 10 days old when she and her mother were declared recovered on Wednesday.

MC-518 is the youngest Covid-19 survivor in the City of Mati and perhaps the country. (PR)
