At a time when the world is facing the greatest threat to human existence from coronavirus and even more so now after a new mutant has been discovered in the United Kingdom, it seems like there is no getting away from the virus easily.
Recently, in a sad piece of news, actress Jessie Cave revealed that her two-month-old baby has contracted the virus.
Best known for her character of Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter film franchise, Jessie revealed that her two-month-old baby has tested Covid positive in an Instagram post.
Cave’s baby boy Tenn is currently in an isolation room at the hospital after contracting Covid-19, with health staff paying extra attention to the case.
Alongside a photo of her infant who is under observation and undergoing treatment, the actress wrote, “I watched the news about lockdown from an isolated room in hospital. Poor baby is covid positive. He’s okay and doing well but they are being vigilant and cautious, thankfully.”
She also warned her followers about the new COVID strain.
“This strain is super powerful and contagious so I do hope that people take extra care in the coming weeks. Really didn’t want this to be the start of my families new year. Really didn’t want to be back in a hospital so soon after his traumatic birth,” she wrote.
She further added, “Once again I’m in awe of nurses and doctors. It makes me even more proud of my brother, and doctor @pondermed and my father, king GP @davidlloyd73 …. please wish baby a speedy recovery. He’s 9llbs 7 now so he’s a stronger and bigger boy than he was when we were last in a hospital room (and the needle went into his hand with louder more powerful screams.) Love and best wishes to everyone #nhsheroes #nhs (sic).”
For the unversed, the new variant of COVID-19 was first found in the United Kingdom.
The UK has reported more than two million COVID-19 cases and 70,000 deaths linked to the disease.
