Up to now, the newborn has been in a safe status. The doctors added that most of the newborns there don’t get in touch with the 2019-nCoV even though their mothers are infected with the virus. Earlier, a Vietnamese doctor has proved that coronavirus can spread from gravidas to their child based on scientific tests.

Following him, if the mothers infected with 2019-nCoV indirectly, they don’t need to worry immensely. As not many cases mother-baby transmission happens until date.
