Author: Mija Ververs, Xiaodi Xu
Resource type: Research

A list of initial literature search results on breastmilk, breastfeeding and pregnancy-related to COVID-19. It was conducted with great support from one Master of Science in Public Health student at Johns Hopkins Ms. Xiaodi Xu who was also able to scan through literature exclusively available in Mandarin Chinese. Annex 1 shows the keywords used to search through the various scientific databases. The last part (references 13-16) is just an overview of recommendations done by Chinese health officials concerning breastmilk, breastfeeding and COVID-19 and these documents did not contain any scientific materials.
