Coronavirus-stricken mother gives birth on her death bed

A newborn baby is the sole survivor of a family that were killed by Covid-19 in Russia.

The boy's mother gave birth to him as she lay on her death bed attached to a ventilator in Russian city St Petersburg.

Svetlana Sorochinskaya, 36, is believed to have caught coronavirus visiting her father Kirey Pinchin, 64, in hospital where he had undergone heart surgery.

He died from Covid-19 on 5 November, eight days after he was discharged from hospital.

At the time Svetlana posted: 'My daddy ... you were the best, kindest man in this world.

'I will love you forever.

'You didn't have enough time to see your grandson.'

Already sick from coronavirus, she had complained that medics gave her 'some cough powder, and that's it' to fight the virus.

She had initially gone to a maternity hospital to give birth but when her Covid-19 was confirmed, she was sent to a leading infectious diseases hospital.

Three days later Svetlana, a dental clinic administrator, gave birth six weeks prematurely to her son, who she had decided to name Kirey, after her late father.

Hours after giving birth, she died.
