4. About delivery when there is a positive reaction of COVID-19
If an infected patient has a high fever or other symptoms and the physician determines that delivery at an advanced medical institution is preferable, we may arrange to transfer the patient to a hospital.
We will do our best to prevent newborn baby and our patients from being infected with COVID-19 and epidemic diseases.
Your family members are requested to thoroughly prevent infections daily, such as washing hands, disinfecting, and coughing etiquette.
