After complying with the protocol of waiting 48 hours for a new PCR test, the negative diagnosis leads one to believe that the baby may have acquired the antibodies through the mother’s placenta. This is the most accepted hypothesis by the hospital, as newborns are not able to generate immunity against covid-19 on their own.
The mother of the Spanish baby had tested positive when she was admitted to the hospital, which reinforces the thesis of transmission of antibodies. There is also the possibility of transmission at delivery, which can make the baby test positive for the presence of the virus. According to the Spanish Society of Neonatology, the case is “very rare” and will be investigated by scientists.
