Sars-CoV-2 isolation from a 10-day-old newborn in Italy: a case report. IDCases. 2020 Sep 17;22:e00960. doi: 10.1016/j.idcr.2020.e00960. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 32963961; PMCID: PMC7497735.

This report describes the evolution of COVID-19 in a 10 day-old-baby. The mother developed the disease immediately after childbirth and therefore a vertical transmission can be excluded. The isolation of the virus in cell culture with a cytopathic effect already visible after 48 hours, indicates that the viral load of the newborn was quite high, but not serious course of the disease was observed. This paper wants to highlight the possible role of newborns and children in the spread of the disease.
