The La Leche League International Board has issued a media release about Continuing to Nurse Your Baby Through Coronavirus (2019-nCoV; COVID-19) and Other Respiratory Infections.
All of of LLLI resources about breastfeeding and coronavirus are now collated here: https://www.llli.org/coronavirus-resources/

The media release is now available in 11 languages (with others on the way) – huge thanks to the amazing individuals and teams who worked on these translations!

Those who become infected shortly before giving birth and then begin breastfeeding, and those who become infected while breastfeeding, will produce specific secretory IgA antibodies and many other critical immune factors in their milk to protect their nursing infants and enhance their infants’ own immune responses.
