Hinojosa-Velasco A, de Oca PVB, García-Sosa LE, et al. A Case Report of Newborn Infant with Severe COVID-19 in Mexico: Detection of SARS-CoV-2 in Human Breast Milk and Stool [published online ahead of print, 2020 Aug 26]. Int J Infect Dis. 2020;S1201-9712(20)30684-6. doi:10.1016/j.ijid.2020.08.055
Although COVID-19 in pregnant women and their neonates has been demonstrated, there is not enough evidence about how this vertical transmission occurs. This report describes SARS-CoV-2 infection in a 21-year-old mother-son duo at the time of birth, focusing on the viral RNA detection in the stool of both, and the human breast milk.
