A study has found that breastfeeding women, who have been infected with Covid, continue to secrete antibodies into their milk for up to 10 months. While protecting infants from the disease, these antibodies can also be used to treat people with severe Covid, as per the researchers. The main antibody in breast milk is Secretory Immunoglobulin A (IgA), which sticks to the lining of babies’ respiratory and intestinal tracts, blocking viruses and bacteria from entering their bodies.
