An Indian couple says they’ve named their newborn twins Corona and Covid in an effort to put a positive spin on the deadly pandemic that is sweeping the globe.
The bouncing bundles of viral joy arrived on March 27 at B.R. Ambedkar Memorial Hospital in Raipur, central India, according to media reports.
“I was blessed with the twins — a boy and a girl — in the early hours on March 27,” mother Preeti Verma told the Press Trust of India news agency. “We have named them Covid and Corona for now.”
