Why swab a 3 day old? I find this disturbing indeed. EWR


A three-day-old baby died in a government hospital in Tripura’s Agartala on Wednesday, August 12, allegedly after a nurse inserted a nasal swab to take samples for its COVID-19 test. The incident took place in the city’s biggest COVID-19 treatment facility — GB Pant government hospital. According to the baby’s family, the nurse took samples of the infant after the mother tested positive for the infection. Soon after the cotton swabs were inserted, the infant started bleeding from the nose. It died on the same day.
