Ximena Duque joins the list of personalities from the entertainment industry who have tested positive for COVID-19. However, the diagnosis of the Colombian star comes in the middle of her last weeks of pregnancy.
According to the magazine HOLA! USA, Duque and his family tested positive for COVID-19. At the moment, all the members of the actress’s family are well, but very alarmed by the situation that they assure that “it is not a joke” and that it can arrive at “any moment”.
The American media reported that Jay Adkins, Ximena Duque’s husband, and their daughter Luna, are coming out of their contagion, while the interpreter recently began to present symptoms related to the virus.
Duque tested positive for COVID-19 just a few days ago, so she must comply with rigorous care and medical supervision to be able to successfully overcome her diagnosis that comes in the middle of the final stretch of her third pregnancy.
HELLO! The USA detailed that Cristan Carabias, Ximena Duque’s first-born, is the only member of the family who was not infected with COVID-19. Currently, the young man is at the residence of his father, the television presenter Christian Carabias.
For his part, Duque has remained on the sidelines of pronouncing himself through his official social networks about his diagnosis with COVID-19.
Risks of COVID-19 in pregnant women
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that pregnant women with COVID-19 are more likely to have respiratory complications that require intensive care.
Also, recent research suggests that pregnant women may deliver preterm for the most part, and that their babies are more likely to need to be admitted to the neonatal unit.
A Massachusetts General Hospital study said that miscarriages in pregnant women who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 are unlikely to be closely related to the virus.
The Massachusetts General Hospital also released that previously published data indicates that the COVID-19 virus has not been found in newborn children, this despite the positive diagnosis of their mothers.
Ximena Duque’s son confirmed his mother’s diagnosis with COVID-19
Cristan Carabias, Ximena Duque’s first-born, confirmed through the stories of his official Instagram account that his mother tested positive for COVID-19 about a week ago.
“Many of you already know that my mom and all of them have COVID. My mom came out positive, Jay came out positive, Luna came out positive, and I was the only one who came out negative. That was about a week ago, I took the test again a couple of days ago and I came out negative. I did it again today and it came out negative, ”Carabias mentioned.
“I am negative, I do not have COVID. I am perfectly fine (…) I am fine and I am healthy, I am perfect. But they are with COVID and they are a little sick, I just wanted to tell them to take care of themselves and to put on the masks, “the young man concluded.
