A pregnant woman who was being treated at home after being diagnosed with COVID-19 gave birth to a baby in an ambulance due to lack of beds.
Gyeonggi Yangju Fire Department said on the 18th that around 1:40 a.m., a woman in her 30s living in Yangju gave birth safely with the help of paramedics.
The woman called 911 after labor and was taken to an ambulance, but none of the 16 nearby hospitals could accommodate pregnant women.
Paramedics received remote firefighting medical support and assisted delivery using ambulance delivery kits.
