Martin and Colleagues Publish New Findings on COVID-19 Transmission and Breastfeeding

CSDE Affiliate Melanie Martin and a team of co-authors recently published a study of women diagnosed with COVID-19. The researchers use longitudinal samples of breast milk from COVID patients to identify whether the virus is transmissible from breastfeeding. Milk produced by women with COVID-19 does not contain SARS-CoV-2 and is likely a lasting source of passive immunity via anti-RBD IgA. These results support recommendations encouraging lactating women to continue breastfeeding during and after COVID-19 illness.
