Abstract:   (73 Views)
Backgrounds: The clinical and socioeconomic effects of COVID-19 are still being felt throughout the world. The disease affects people of all age groups, but it is known to have a milder clinical course in children including neonates. There is paucity of data from Sub-Saharan Africa on neonatal COVID-19 infection, and no such case has been reported in the literature in Ghana.
Case presentation: This study presented a case report of a neonate who was found to be positive for COVID-19 infection after presenting symptoms such as respiratory distress, rhinorrhoea, and cough. This neonate was managed with in-hospital standard protocol for sepsis with a focus on pneumonia.
Conclusion: The national guidelines on COVID-19 management were used for the neonate who was recovered and discharged.
