COVID-19 Won’t Be Transmitted From Pregnant Women to Newborns
Well here is at least some good news in all of this. According to WILX, new research confirms that COVID-19 will not transmit from pregnant mothers to newborns at birth.
The study was done in Wuhan,China (the epicenter of the virus) with four women who gave birth while infected with coronavirus. Fortunately, none of the babies developed any serious symptoms, although they were isolated in the NICU, and were not breastfed. One infant did have minor breathing issues and two rashes on the body but that all went away quickly so they assume it wasn't caused by the virus.
All of the babies are healthy still, and the mothers are fully recovered from COVID-19.
