Initial reports from Wuhan (Chen H et al.; Chen Y et al.; Kelvin and Halperin; Qiao; Van Beusekom 2020b; Yu et al.; Zeng et al.; Zhang Z, et al.) and the UK (Mullins et al.) show that when COVID-19 infected pregnant women gave birth, most infants were not infected.  A few were infected briefly, however, indicating possible intrauterine vertical transmission from the mother through the placenta to the fetus.  After the baby is born, the mother and her family could transmit viruses to the baby by the same routes as any other person.
