MORILLA GUZMAN, Andrés Armando et al. Recommendations for the care of newborns suspected or confirmed of infection by SARS-CoV-2 in Cuba. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2020, vol.92, suppl.1, e1164.  Epub 20-Jul-2020. ISSN 0034-7531.

In this work are presented recommendations on the care of newborns who are children of mothers diagnosed with COVID-19 in Cuba, and are expressed the general guidelines on the organization of the services for patients care, the main aspects related with the care in the birth moment, feeding related aspects, clinical characteristics described in this stage of life, complementary studies that must be conducted for diagnosis, the treatment to be used, and discharge and follow up criteria. The autors collected poor existent scientific evidence on the infection by coronavirus in the neonatal stage, and jointly with the National Group of Neonatology of the Ministry of Public Health are proposing these recommendations which are adapted to the characteristics of the neonatal care in Cuba with the aim of guiding the behaviours to implement in the attention to newborns suspected or with confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19.These recommendations are based in the available scientific publications and they are subject to changes since this is an emerging infection and there is scarse information of its presence in the earliest stages of life like it can be a confirmed case of just 36 hours of life. It is expected that all the personnel involved in the attention of newborns suspected or confirmed with infection by SARS-Cov-2 can analyze and add these recommendations to the care and surveillance of their patients.
