In North Carolina, a woman who fought Kovid 19 called her sister a “miracle child” in a medical coma earlier this month.

About a month before her baby was born, Goodson warned her friends and family that she had tested positive for the virus. The post read, “Please keep me and my baby in prayer because I found out today that I tested positive for Code-19.”

Earlier this week, the CDC issued an emergency advisory that specifically encouraged women who were already pregnant or were trying to become pregnant if they had not already done so.
“Pregnancy can be a special time and a time of stress – and pregnancy is an added concern for families during epidemics,” CDC Director Rochelle Valensky said in the advisory. “I strongly encourage people who are pregnant or considering pregnancy to talk to their healthcare provider about the safety benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine to protect their children and themselves. ۔ “
