Abstract

The present study reported the epidemiological, clinical features, laboratory data and management of a family of 5 members with COVID‑19. It was found that the initial clinical manifestations of the 3 adults were fever, cough and sore throat; they all exhibited a higher erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and higher serum glucose level. The 2 children only exhibited a mild dry cough. As regards the 2-month-old infant who was breast-fed, the possible infection source was close contact with family members or respiratory droplets. Her mother's breast milk was negative for SARS‑CoV‑2, as shown by RT‑PCR. The two children persisted to be positive for SARS‑CoV‑2 by anal swab after being released from the hospital, although they were negative for SARS‑CoV‑2 by a throat swab.
