A study to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on Pregnancy
Shireen Samson and Dr. Gajanand R Wale
COVID-19 is a new lung illness linked to significant disease and mortality in the elderly and those with concomitant conditions. Pregnant women, according to research, are much more sensitive to COVID-19 than non-pregnant women. Nevertheless, it's unknown how pregnant women are aware of COVID-19 and take precautions to avoid infection. A global pandemic has been triggered by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), which is triggered by acute respiratory syndrome (SARS syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus typically affects the lungs, causing mild to severe breathing difficulties. Nevertheless, there is overwhelming evidence that the virus has detrimental consequences on other systems components that have the ACE2 receptor, including the placenta. The number of kids born to SARS-CoV-2 infected women tests positive after delivery, implying that the placenta has defense functions. SARS-CoV-2 positive moms tend to have an increased risk of perinatal mortality problems, including miscarriage, foetal development restriction, or stillbirth. The pathobiology of COVID-19 maternal infection, as well as the potential negative effects of viral infection and the likelihood of variables into consideration transfer, are discussed in this paper.
