On 26th July, Cierra Chubb delivered a healthy son after testing positive for Coronavirus. The mother is at present in a medically induced coma and fighting to hold her baby. Cierra’s husband, Jamal Chubb, told USA Today that ‘I feel like I will wake up from the dream and tell her that you won’t believe what I saw last night. But in reality I need the hope and prayer.’
Their elder daughter came home on 12th July from a sports camp with a cough, fever, and headache, and to comfort her mother, Cierra crawled into the bed with her. Two days after this incident, Cierra started showing the same symptoms as her daughter and later on tested positive for the virus. It was Cierra’s 33rd birthday on 24th July; she experienced labor pain along with heavy breathing. She was taken to hospital in Columbia, and after two days, both mother and unborn baby experienced distress and trouble breathing. Cierra has to give birth to the baby in emergency and delivered by cesarean section at 33 weeks of pregnancy.

Her husband Jamal said, ‘this was the first time I was not in her room when she gave birth as I have nobody to watch our children. However, baby Miles was born healthy and is free from covid-19, and is at home. On the other hand, Cierra’s health worsened, and she was placed in the intensive care unit in the hospital. Days following the son’s birth, doctors informed Jamal that his wife’s breathing had dropped and she would be placed on a ventilator.
As Jamal said, ‘ I received a phone call from the hospital asking me regarding Cierra’s last wishes and after five hours they said that she cannot make it through the night. ‘However, currently, she remains in a coma, and her doctors are confident that she will be off the ventilator very soon.
Cierra’s story highlights the necessity of vaccination
Cierra’s husband hopes that her story should put a light on the importance of vaccination though he is fully vaccinated, Cierra was not before she gave birth as she planned to get a jab after the birth. However, she was worried about her unborn baby’s health, and thus, she postponed her jab. After what Jamal faced, he urges all other Americans to get vaccinated if they can.
Jamal alleged that ‘however just two percent of people die from Coronavirus. But that two percent is still somebody’s whole world. So getting vaccinated is the best way, to save your world.’ As per Johns Hopkins University Data, since Yesterday, the Covid mortality rate in the US is at 1.7 percent. According to a maternal-fetal medicine physician, Dr.Ebony Carter, expecting mothers worry that there should be no harm to their babies, and the Vaccine is also a matter of concern for them. She added that many patients believe that the risks linked with covid Vaccine are much greater than the risk of infection.
