How Infection Affects Pregnancy

According to the "New Coronavirus Infectious Disease Treatment Guide", domestic and international clinical statistics show that pregnant women are not particularly susceptible to the new coronavirus compared to women of the same age. It has been reported that the premature birth rate is increasing, and the patients themselves are more likely to become seriously ill. On the other hand, there have been no reports of congenital anomalies in the fetus due to infection during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy, and intrauterine infection is said to be rare.

Daily infection prevention

In general, if a pregnant woman catches pneumonia, it can be severe.
Avoid crowds, wash your hands frequently, and take care of your health on a daily basis.
Avoid places where 1 closed space, 2 crowded places, and 3 close-contact settings overlap at the same time.
