Newborn yanks off Dubai doctor’s mask in viral post!

A picture of a Dubai doctor with a newborn trying to ‘remove’ his surgical mask is breaking the Internet amid the pandemic.

Lebanese doctor Dr Samer Cheaib, obstetrician and gynaecologist with NMC owned Fakih IVF Clinics, was amazed at the global attention the picture received as soon as he posted it. 

The caption reads ‘We all want a sign that we are going to take off the mask soon,’ Indeed! But till then, let us take all precautions.”

“I conducted a C-section delivery where the mother bore a pair of twins – a girl and boy. I got the girl out first and then her brother, who spontaneously tugged at my mask trying to pull it off my face. We all laughed and joked how this was a good omen and that hopefully, we will be able to go back to pre-Covid times when wearing masks was not mandatory. Their excited father was clicking pictures relentlessly to capture the special moments of seeing his twin come to the world.” Dr Cheaib said.
