Immigrant Mother And Family Suffer With COVID-19 As Teacher Cares For Their Healthy Newborn

STAMFORD, CONNECTICUT - MAY 5: Guatemalan immigrant Marvin comforts his son Junior after a nurse drew blood for a COVID-19 antibody test at a clinic on May 5, 2020 in Stamford, Connecticut. They were also re-tested for COVID-19 to see if they are now negative, a month after getting sick from coronavirus. Marvin's wife Zully, also sick with COVID-19, gave birth to Marvin's son Neysel on April 2. Hospital staff performed an emergency C-section to save the child and Zully was put on a ventilator. Her baby, Neysel could not go home, as his father Marvin and brother Junior were COVID-19 positive and quarantined there. After several weeks in the hospital, Zully responded well to antibody blood plasma transfusions and was able to return home. The infant is in the temporary care of elementary school teacher Luciana Lira. The K-5 Bilingual /ESL instructor, who teaches Junior at Hart Magnet Elementary in Stamford, will continue caring for the baby until his family tests COVID-negative, and they can all be reunited. The Stamford non-profit Building One Community (B1C) immigrant resource center is assisting the family during this time. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
