As the world is facing the COVID-19 virus in every areas and various life situation, still no final word on the exposure of children to COVID-19. In other words, reports shared with the public indicated that children are not vulnerable to contracting COVID-19, on the other hands cases were reported of children contracting the virus and similar COVID-19 symptoms were documented. In addition, the nature of baby care that a mother who is tested positive with COVID-19 can be altered due to her struggling with the disease. For example, is the child who is nursed by the mother who is currently under treatment for COVID-19 face physical symptoms or changes in his body and internal functions? Additionally, in the case of a recommendation to the mother who contract the virus to go for isolation “quarantined”, who will be responsible for caring for the child and is it critical for the child to be removed from environment where the mother stays? These questions need to be answered by the medical research authority in order to determine the nature of care and interaction between children and their care givers.
