No cases of neonatal breastfeeding infection have been found so far. But whether the new coronavirus is transmitted vertically through the placenta or through breast milk after birth remains unclear. Therefore, for mothers diagnosed with the new coronavirus, the newborns should be kept in isolation for two weeks according to the virus infection, and should not be breast-feeding. Q3. If the newborn meets which condition, does it need to be checked? The routes of neonatal 2019-nCoV infection may include vertical mother-to-child transmission, close contact transmission, droplet transmission (between family members, family visitors), and nosocomial infection.
Therefore, babies who meet any of the following conditions will need to be checked: Pregnant women with confirmed or highly suspected infection Family Company banner design members who are in close contact with pregnant women are confirmed or highly suspected infected persons Family caregivers with confirmed and highly suspected infections after the birth of a newborn Newborn supplies are frequently disinfected, and the room is regularly opened for ventilation Although there are no confirmed cases of pregnant women in Taiwan so far, epidemic prevention work must still be done. Dr. Wang Duosheng pointed out that in caring for newborns, we should minimize the number of caregivers, open windows regularly for ventilation, caregivers wash their hands frequently, and disinfect the newborn's supplies (high temperature or 75% alcohol).
Closely observe the changes of the newborn's body temperature, feeding, breathing, jaundice, etc., and seek medical attention at any time if there is any discomfort. If the mother has confirmed or suspected infection, it is recommended that the newborn be isolated for at least 14 days. Newborns who have symptoms such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing, poor mental response, poor feeding, and repeated vomiting should seek medical attention in time.
