A new born baby has been named Covid Marie in Philippines, as some parents have taken to naming newborns after the coronavirus.
When Colline Tabesa gave birth to a healthy baby girl in the central Philippine city of Bacolod on April 13, she and the father John Tupas decided to mark the occasion with a show of gratitude.
“This COVID-19 has caused great suffering around the world,” said 23-year-old Tupas, expressing relief after the uneventful delivery.
“I wanted her name to remind us that COVID did not only bring us suffering. Despite all of this, a blessing came to us,” he added.
Apparently unperturbed by the prospect of their children being forever associated with a deadly pandemic, the newborn has been named Covid Marie.
