To the Editor We found the Research Letter on early-onset severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection in neonates by Zeng et al1 an interesting read. The report from the authors on neonatal cases from the epicenter of the pandemic is commendable and sheds some light on this infection in a vulnerable group. It is especially useful information as we all try to navigate our way around the control of this unfortunate pandemic.
