Newborn Baby Born With COVID-19 Antibodies


A woman in Singapore who had COVID-19 in March just gave birth to a baby. Surprisingly, the baby seems to have been born with antibodies, says Business Insider. These antibodies appear to be protective against the virus. Past research has suggested antibodies against COVID-19 cross the placenta in utero. Little is known about how long the immunity may last and how the timing of infection during pregnancy plays a role. Breast milk also has detectable antibodies and there's no evidence it transmits the virus.

Fortunately, state and local health officials don't think they are at any risk of harm. The West Virginia National Guard issued a statement soon after, vowing to avoid such incidents in the future.
