The epidemic Novel Coronavirus or nCoV does not choose who to victimize, may it be adults, old people or even babies. Especially that kids have a lower immune system than the average adult, they are even more prone to being infected with the said disease.
This is why many netizens were left heartbroken after seeing this viral video of a dad together with a baby suffering from nCov.
In the said clip, the baby is seen inside a quarantine room where visitors can only see him through a glass. One who is most worried about the baby’s situation is his dad. As the dad approaches, the baby is seen in a full-on welcoming mode and even extended his arms in an effort to make his dad come to him and give him a hug.
Unfortunately, the glass between them cannot make that possible. The baby was left with a confused face as he could not understand what was happening. As for the dad, he only turned his back and cried a hurtful cry with the feeling of hopelessness and pity for his child at the same time.
According to Buzzooks, the baby in the video is from Wuhan and since the city is now on lockdown, there are families who have been separated from each other because of the risk of infection. To prevent further spread, even family members cannot get close with nCov-positive patients – even babies.
