And the Best Names of The Year goes to...

Recently, two newborn twins who were born amidst the ongoing lockdown have been named Covid and Corona by their parents, according to local reports.

The twins certainly have the most unique names ever as they are after the pandemic that's creating crisis all over the world.

The baby girl and baby boy said hello to the world on March 27’s early hours at the Dr. BR Ambedkar Memorial Hospital. Their parents Vinay and Preeti Verma, from Chhattisgarh, shared with Press Trust of India that the names were chosen to represent victory over hardship.

Preeti Verma, the mother, said that as her delivery was successful in spite of several difficulties, she and her husband wanted to make the day unforgettable. Although the virus is indeed life-threatening and dangerous, the outbreak made people pay more attention to hygiene, sanitation and induce other good habits, she added. Moreover, the parents had thought about these names.

Verma mentioned that hospital workers started calling her daughter Covid and son Corona, therefore they decided to keep the names when their children were born. They already have a 2-year-old daughter.

This will be a special memory for the baby twins

More details were shared by Verma. She suddenly had a severe labor pain and her husband somehow managed to arrange an ambulance run by 102 Mahtari Express service.

Because vehicular movements were not allowed on the roads due to the lockdown, police stopped them at several places but then let them go after learning about her condition. She was wondering how it would be at the hospitals because it was in the middle of the night, but doctors and staff were really cooperative.
