The image has gone viral worldwide and is being seen as a sign of hope.
The exciting moment happened in Dubai and the protagonist is the doctor Samer Cheaib.
According to the health professional, the image can be seen as a harbinger that, soon, we will all be able to walk without a mask again, a necessary protective measure due to the covid-19 pandemic.
In the photograph, the newborn seems to want to take off the mask of the doctor who brought him into the world.
“Everyone is waiting to be able to remove the mask, that is the reason why the photograph went viral”, he said.
The obstetrician revealed to the press that the mother gave birth to a pair of twins, the boy appearing in the viral image.
“The second baby was a boy, I took it so that the father could take a picture and, spontaneously, the baby took off my mask. Everyone started laughing”, said Cheaib.
