Baby born with COVID-19 antibodies: report

Singapore: A Singaporean woman who was infected with the novel coronavirus in March when she was pregnant has given birth to a baby with antibodies against the virus, offering a new clue as to whether the infection can be transferred from mother to child.

The baby was born this month without COVID-19 but with the virus antibodies, the Straits Times newspaper reported on Sunday, citing the mother.

The case casts new light on the way the virus spreads from mothers to foetuses.

Ng-Chan had been mildly ill from the disease and was discharged from hospital after two-and-a-half weeks, the Straits Times said.
