The widow of Li Wenliang, a Chinese doctor who raised the
alarm about the country's coronavirus outbreak, has given birth to their son.
Fu Xuejie, 32, shared a picture of the boy on the messaging
app WeChat, calling him a "final gift" from Dr Li.
Dr Li was arrested by authorities for "spreading
rumours", and later died after catching the virus.
Heroic doctor Li
Wenliang and his family already without him
After a public outcry over his death, he was exonerated and
honoured as a hero by the government.
Mrs Fu told that after her husband's death she suffered from
health problems brought on by grief and had to be temporarily hospitalised to
keep the unborn baby safe.
She described Dr Li as a responsible doctor and loving
husband, and said her family initially hid his death from their other child,
saying that "Dad went abroad."
