Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a disease outbreak that was originally found in China and started to spread worldwide at the end of 2019. A few case reports have stated that there is a possibility of vertical infection from the mother to the carried child during pregnancy. This raises concerns regarding the risk of congenital COVID-19 infection in neonates. This case report explains the possibility of vertical transmission from a pregnant woman with COVID-19 to her unborn baby, confirmed by the positive Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) COVID-19 result of the baby one day after birth.
