BALI - A Bali zoo has named a baby giraffe Corona in honour of her birth during the global pandemic.

The calf was born in April to mother Sophie and father Matadi, joining two other siblings at Bali Safari Park.

"Corona is healthy and is still breastfeeding. We'll keep her under observation for three months," said a zoo spokesman.

Bali Safari Park has been closed to visitors since late March as part of efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus infections.
