Baby's Days In
It comes naturally for parents and other members of families to shower an 8 months old baby with hugs and kisses. Until the parents received the news that the baby’s grandfather was hospitalized, tested positive for Covid19 and died the next day.
The last time Zoey, the name of the baby, being in contact with his grandfather was only a week before, when they shared the same bed for short naps, simultaneously. That day, his grandfather had already shown symptoms. So Zoey needed to undergo a series of tests and quarantine himself, separated from his father, who also suspected to have caught the virus.

I am the baby’s aunt, and I documented Zoey’s life during quarantine, with us trying to hold back the desire to hug and kiss him.
