In Japan, a newborn has been infected with his mother by a coronavirus. It is believed that this is the first case of infection from mother to child in the country. Public broadcaster NHK gave its information in its report on Monday. According to Japanese media outlets, researchers from the Japan Pediatric Society studied 1,124 medical facilities nationwide, including pediatric departments.
According to the results revealed after this survey, in August last year, 52 newborn corona-infected mothers gave birth in 31 medical facilities. One of them was found infected with the newborn corona. However, no health problems were seen in the child. NHK, citing researchers in its report, said that cases of the coronation of mother-to-child corona have also been reported abroad.
Children with antibodies born in certain countries
According to Morioka Ichiro, a professor at Nihon University School of Medicine, corona-infected mothers are less likely to infect their children with the virus. However, even if they become infected, they will see very mild symptoms of the virus. On the other hand, there are reports coming from several other countries, including Singapore and Bulgaria, where women were infected with coronavirus during pregnancy. But antibodies are already present in the children they have given birth to.
Increase risk of infection even after vaccination
Let us know that the outbreak of the second and third wave of Corona is being seen in many countries of the world. More than 4.5 lakh people have been infected with Coronavirus in Japan, while 8,821 people have died due to the virus. On the other hand, the worldwide number of corona infections has exceeded 20 million. At the same time, more than 27 lakh people have lost their lives. The vaccination campaign is going on all over the world, but still there is an increase in the cases of corona.
Corona ban is being implemented in many countries
Corona sanctions are being implemented again in European countries in view of the increasing cases of the corona. Corona sanctions have been implemented once again in Italy on Monday. At the same time, Poland has imposed a nationwide lockdown. Swimming pools, non-essential shops and cinema halls have been ordered closed here. On the other hand, the vaccination campaign is being affected by the floods in Australia. New South Wales, the most populous state here, is completely submerged in water.
