It remains unclear whether severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) can be shed into breastmilk and transmitted to a child through breastfeeding. Recent investigations have found no evidence of SARS-CoV-2 in human breastmilk, but sample sizes were small.
We examined milk from two nursing mothers infected with SARS-CoV-2. Both mothers were informed about the study and gave informed consent. Ethical approval for this case study was waived by the Ethics Committee of Ulm University and all samples were anonymised.
