Three-day-old Baby Dies After Mum Tests Positive For Coronavirus

A three-day-old baby has died after his mother tested positive for coronavirus.

Coolio Carl Justin John Morgan was born at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend on Saturday, May 2.

An inquest heard the baby was diagnosed with fetal bradycardia – a low heart rate – and was transferred to Singleton Hospital in Swansea when his condition deteriorated.

Senior coroner’s officer Lauren Howitt told the brief hearing at Pontypridd Coroners' Court on Wednesday that his mother, from Maesteg, was found to be Covid-19 positive soon after delivery.

No post-mortem examination has been carried out and the preliminary cause of death was given as "1a. Severe hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy" (a lack of oxygen and blood to the brain) and "2. Maternal Covid-19".

Coroner Graeme Hughes asked his officers to investigate the circumstances of the death ahead of a final hearing listed for April 28, 2021.
