A Singaporean woman who was infected with the novel coronavirus in March when she was pregnant gave birth to a baby with antibodies to the virus, which gives a new clue as to whether the infection is from the mother can be transferred to the child.
The baby was born this month without COVID-19 but with the virus antibodies, the Straits Times reported on Sunday, citing the mother.
« My doctor suspects I passed my COVID-19 antibodies to him during my pregnancy, » Celine Ng-Chan told the newspaper.
Ng-chan had a mild illness and was discharged from the hospital after two and a half weeks, the Straits Times said.
Ng-chan and the National University Hospital (NUH) where she gave birth did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
According to the World Health Organization, it is not yet known whether a pregnant woman with COVID-19 can transmit the virus to her fetus or baby during pregnancy or delivery.
So far, the active virus has not been found in fluid samples around the baby in the womb or in breast milk.
Doctors in China reported the detection and decline of COVID-19 antibodies over time in infants born to women with coronavirus disease, according to an article published in Emerging Infectious Diseases magazine in October.
Transmission of the new coronavirus from mother to newborn is rare, doctors at Irving Medical Center at New York-Presbyterian / Columbia University reported in JAMA Pediatrics in October.
