Covid-19 is an unprecedented situation and the whole world is grappled by this healthcare emergency. The long term impact of disease on pregnancy and fetal are still not known. So far what we have learnt from other related viral infections like influenza and SARS and MERS, these were shown to be more severe in pregnant women. But fortunately, current data does not indicate that pregnant women are at high risk from Covid-19. At the moment very little is known about the effect of Covid-19 on pregnancy especially if infection occurs in first half of pregnancy. And though risk of infection is same as general population, still pregnant women are considered to be a vulnerable group due to their immune-compromised state. In late pregnancy, it has been seen that risk of preterm labour and delivery is high in women infected with Covid-19.
