J Neonatal Perinatal Med. 2020 Aug 26. doi: 10.3233/NPM-200489. Online ahead of print.


There are few neonates reported with COVID-19 disease. To date there is no clear evidence of vertical transmission of the virus before birth. We report a 4-day old infant born to an asymptomatic mother who developed infection with SARS-CoV-2, likely from contact with parents during the postnatal period.
