Antibodies to the coronavirus have been discovered in a newborn baby in Singapore. The baby’s mother contracted the coronavirus in March.
According to international media, a pregnant woman infected with covid 19 in Singapore gave birth to a baby in March, which showed antibodies against the coronavirus.
Experts say this is a new indication of the transmission of the disease from mother to child. The baby was born in November and was declared free of covid 19 but contained antibodies that fight against the virus.
The baby’s mother said doctors believe the antibodies were passed from me to the baby during pregnancy.
In March this year, the woman contracted the coronavirus, showing mild symptoms, but was admitted to the hospital for pregnancy, from where she was discharged two and a half weeks later.
On the other hand, the World Health Organization says that no comprehensive research has been done on whether a pregnant woman infected with code 19 can transmit the virus to a child during pregnancy or childbirth.
In October of this year, Columbia University in the United States reported in its research in the medical journal Jampedia Trucks that the rate of transmission of the coronavirus from mother to newborn is almost non-existent.
Research has also shown that expected delivery, breastfeeding, or handing over the baby to the mother immediately after birth does not increase the virus’s risk.
