A woman from Singapore, who was infected with the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) while she was pregnant, gave birth to a baby with antibodies against the deadly disease. 

The baby was born this month without covid-19 but with the virus antibodies, according to the news.

She said that she was ill but was later discharged after recovering from the disease. 

The World Health Organisation (WHO) did not confirm fully if a pregnant woman can pass the virus to her baby during pregnancy or delivery.

Researchers said in a journal JAMA Pediatrics stated that the transmission of the COVID-19 from mothers to new-borns is rare.
