Abstract:   (151 Views)

COVID‐19 is a novel viral pandemic. It is believed that due to physiological changes within the pregnancy, pregnant women may be more susceptible to COVID-19. Currently, there exists no reliable evidence being available regarding the likelihood of infection for pregnant women compared to the general population. On the other hand, given the previous experiences with SARS and MERS, pregnant women are likely to be at high risk for COVID-19 and its complications. Comparing the results of studies on COVID-19 during pregnancy and that of the general population, it can be concluded that pregnant women develop COVID-19 at a younger age than the general population. The results showed that due to changes during pregnancy, pregnant women have a higher risk for COVID-19 than other people, perhaps due to the lower mean age of COVID-19 in pregnant women, this leads to less COVID-19 on the adverse pregnancy outcomes.
