MIOT Hospital Chennai, is one such facility where the doctors successfully treated a critical coronavirus patient who was five months pregnant. Sowmiya (24) who had undergone two procedures which involved her reproductive organs before marriage, was carrying a five months old foetus when she tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.

She was critically ill, and was in dire need of oxygen support when her family admitted her to MIOT in Chennai. She spent 16 days in the facility, where she was constantly shuffled between the ICU wards and normal wards. Throughout her treatment period, the doctors constantly cared for her foetus by performing several ultrasounds to check for its good health. During her stay, she slipped into a very serious condition where her muscles were weak and the doctor’s feared that her brain had been affected.

She was on a ventilator as her oxygen levels dropped to 60% (healthy person’s oxygen level is 95%) and the doctors’ attention and care helped Sowmiya recover. At the end of the 16th day, she tested negative for the virus and her foetus was in good health. She was discharged by the hospital. Her speedy and miraculous recovery was ensured by timely medical intervention provided by the hospital’s critical care specialists, neurologists, cardiologists, gynaecologists, senior pulmonologists, and haematologists, along with her family’s undying support. MIOT Hospitals have been admitting COVID-19 patients in large numbers and has successfully treated over 4,500 people till date.
