The coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) emerged as a pandemic in December 2019. Pre-natal, post-natal and early newborn periods are considered to be highly susceptible periods in terms of the COVID-19 infection. Although there is little evidence on vertical transmission from mother to her newborn, an infection can occur after birth. This case report highlights coronavirus infection in a newborn born to COVID positive mother.
