Title

An Uncomplicated Delivery in a Patient with Covid-19 in the United States

Subject

Description

To rapidly communicate information on the global clinical effort against Covid-19, the Journal has initiated a series of case reports that offer important teaching points or novel findings. The case reports should be viewed as observations rather than as recommendations for evaluation or treatment. In the interest of timeliness, these reports are evaluated by in-house editors, with peer review reserved for key points as needed.

At 39 weeks of gestation, a 34-year-old woman (gravida 7, para 5) presented to the labor and delivery unit with a 3-day history of fever, chills, dry cough, and myalgia. She reported decreased fetal movements during the past day. She worked as a waitress and reported that she had not traveled recently. Her husband had had similar symptoms for the past 24 hours.
