ABSTRACT

Epidemiological Alert: COVID-19 During Pregnancy   [open html - 0B]

From the Document: "Recently published results and studies based on COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] surveillance data have indicated an increased risk among pregnant women of presenting with severe forms of COVID-19 and, therefore, of being hospitalized and admitted to intensive care units (ICU). The Pan American Health Organization / World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) requests that Member States intensify efforts to ensure access to prenatal care services, as well as to implement preventive measures to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with COVID-19 across all levels of the health system, in order to maintain the commitment to reducing maternal and perinatal mortality and the progress achieved to date."
