Is nCoV secreted through breast milk? What is the effect of pasteurization on breast milk nCoV (secreted or contaminated)? Do we continue human milk banking during this pandemic?

Dear Urmila

greetings!

to date the evidence we have shows no transmission of Covid 19 through breastfmilk.

Please find two (2) important statements on Milk Banking and donor's breastmilk during Covid 19 from:

  1. The European Milk Bank Association (EMBA) : https://europeanmilkbanking.com/covid-19-emba-position-statement/?fbclid=IwAR2SJ-c3DKgvPSzUa7zTHlr3uw5YukgHlrABfVIQ5eh2wJlZ1QtyER_f-qQ
  2. The Human Milk Bank Association of North America (HMBANA) : https://www.hmbana.org/news/statement-on-coronavirus.html?fbclid=IwAR1Y89GzRHy72BcL7EWaT5K2kqNuPOry2gPjPN1L80t1h9y7w0ber2vU7Fg

Thanks, and I hope it can help

best
