Esther Zhao thought she was doing the right thing when she brought her 2-1/2-year-old daughter to a Shanghai hospital with a fever on March 26. Three days later, Zhao was begging health authorities not to separate them after she and the little girl both tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.
Doctors then threatened Zhao that her daughter would be left at the hospital while she was relocated to quarantine if she did not agree to transfer the girl to the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center in the city’s Jinshan district.

“There have been no photos at all… I’m so anxious, I have no idea what situation my daughter is in,” she said on Saturday (April 2) through tears, still stuck at the hospital she went to last week. “The doctor said Shanghai rules is that children must be sent to designated points, adults to quarantine centers and you’re not allowed to accompany the children.”
Zhao is now reportedly panicking after images of crying children at a Shanghai health facility went viral in China.
