Indian couple name their newborn son 'Lockdown'

An Indian couple who welcomed their son on Monday, April 6th have named him 'Lockdown' following the 21 days lockdown enforced in India to help fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The boy was born in Bacheri village in the Sheopur district of central India, on Monday during the country's 21-day strict lockdown.

When staff asked what name they should write on the birth certificate, the boy's mother Manju Mail and father Raghunath revealed their unusual choice.

According to the Times of India, the mother, Manju said: 

He is Lockdown, as he was born during the lockdown period.

Her husband added: 

My son and our family will remember this time of crisis throughout our life. It is a significant name.
The whole world is using the lockdown as a means to stem this pandemic. We should not take Lockdown lightly.

Only in India.
