COVID-19 can’t be transmitted through breastfeeding – WHO

 

 

 

 

 

 
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said that there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted through an infected nursing mother to her child via breast milk.

In a statement by WHO on its website, nursing mothers are encouraged to continue breastfeeding their babies despite the pandemic.

Researchers are currently testing breast milk from mothers with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19.

”WHO and UNICEF encourage women to continue to breastfeed during the COVID-19 pandemic, even if they have confirmed or suspected COVID-19”.

“Women with confirmed or suspected infection can, therefore, breastfeed if they wish to do so.”

”The numerous benefits of breastfeeding substantially outweigh the potential risks of illness associated with the virus.”-
