COVID-19 Outbreak in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit During Third Pandemic Wave: A Case Series

  • Pediatrics, Perinatology and Child Health

The case series aims to provide insights into the clinical presentation, diagnosis, management, and outcomes of neonates infected with COVID-19 during the third wave. We highlight the unusual clinical features, especially incessant cough even in extremely premature neonates, and the mode of horizontal transmission that led to this outbreak. A high index of suspicion and timely diagnosis of COVID-19 in neonates can help avoid the overdiagnosis of clinical sepsis and limit the inadvertent use of antibiotics. The report adds valuable information to the literature for clinicians caring for neonates during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
