But for them, they mean ‘triumph over hardship’.

The names remind them about all the hardships they overcame during the lockdown, to have a safe delivery of the babies in the night of March 26-27 at a government hospital.

“I was blessed with the twins, a boy and a girl, in the early hours on March 27. We have named them Covid (boy) and Corona (girl) for now,” Preeti Verma, the 27-old mother of the newborns, said in a report.

“The delivery took place after facing several hardship and therefore, my husband and I wanted to make the day unforgettable.

“Indeed the virus is risky and life-threatening but its outbreak made people focus on sanitation, hygiene and inculcate other good habits. Thus, we thought about these names,” she said, giving reasons for their uncommon decision.

“When the hospital staff also started calling the babies as Corona and Covid, we finally decided to name them after the pandemic,” she added.

The couple, originally from Uttar Pradesh, resides in a rented house in the Purani Basti area of the state capital.

However, they said they may rename their kids in the future.
