Neonatal Management During the Coronavirus Disease
Journal of Neonatal Biology is pleased to announce Special issue on “Neonatal Management During the Coronavirus Disease”.
Neonates might get 2019-nCoV infection through close contact with virus-infected patients or virus carriers. In the case of neonatal infection, the disease might have insidious onset and be non-specific.
The diagnosis of 2019-nCoV neonatal infection should meet all the following requirements: Showing at least one of the clinical symptoms, including temperature instability, hypoactivity or poor feeding, or tachypnoea.
Showing abnormal findings on chest radiograph, including unilateral or bilateral ground-glass opacity, multiple lobular, or subsegmental areas of consolidation.
Being at high risk of 2019-nCoV infection because the patient's family members or caregivers have been diagnosed with 2019-nCoV infection, had close contact with someone with probable or confirmed 2019-nCoV, had close contact with someone with pneumonia of unknown cause, are living in or travelling to epidemic areas, or have been in animal markets or close contact with wild animals, within 14 days before the onset of illness.
