Seroprevalence and presentation of SARS-CoV-2 in pregnancy
One of several case series of pregnant women diagnosed with COVID-19 by PCR reports that 41 (10%) of the 427 women required admission to a critical care unit. Most women described in these case series are in the third trimester of pregnancy, which could reflect reporting bias, or a higher risk of infection or increased disease severity compared with women in the first trimester of pregnancy.
