The woman, whose name was withheld, was in labour and was being taken in a car by relatives to Chai Nat Narenthorn Hospital.

About 6am, while passing a COVID checkpoint in front of Chai Nat Bird Park, the woman said her baby was on the way and she could not hold back any longer. She was moved out of the car to the footpath, and nurses assigned to the checkpoint took on the role of emergency midwives.

The woman gave birth to a healthy boy. The nurses said the baby was “strong and normal”.
