A man showing symptoms of being infected with the coronavirus lied about his health in order to see his wife who was due to give birth in a New York state hospital.

The man whose identity remains hidden went to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY, and, when questioned on arrival at the maternity unit about whether he had been exposed to the virus, denied it so that he could be with his wife in childbirth, according to NBC News.

Shortly after delivery, the mother began to feel ill with symptoms of COVID-19. It was there when her husband admitted that he could have been the cause because he could be infected.

As a prevention measure, the medical center announced through its website stricter measures to protect the staff of that and three other hospitals affiliated with maternity services to detect symptoms, including the evaluation of temperature levels.

In addition, as a preventive measure, a policy of zero visits was implemented with limited exceptions, such as the case of a guardian for pediatric patients and a support person for obstetric patients.

“Once the support person arrives at the unit, they will be examined for symptoms, including temperature. People with symptoms will be asked to leave the hospital. These detection measures will be completed twice a day throughout the hospital stay, "explained the hospital.

As for people with symptoms of coronavirus or other infections, "they will be asked to leave the hospital," the statement said.

UR Medicine, the company that owns the hospital, cannot say whether the mother, father, or newborn was infected with the coronavirus due to privacy laws, NBC News reported.
