    A new study is backing the guidance that babies born to mothers infected with coronavirus should not be separated after delivery. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet and the Public Health Agency of Sweden said that while the babies born to mothers who tested positive for the virus are likely to be born early, few were actually sickened with coronavirus themselves. The study, published in JAMA, analyzed almost 90,000 births that occurred in Sweden between March 11, 2020 and Jan. 31, 2021.

The majority of babies who tested positive did not have symptoms, according to the research, which was published on EurekAlert.org.
