Ministry of Health: the incidence of COVID-19 among pregnant women is above average

The Russian Ministry of Health assessed the incidence of coronavirus among pregnant women. According to the data obtained, it turned out that this indicator is higher than the average for the population, but often the disease is asymptomatic.

As they write "News", The Ministry of Health has drawn up new guidelines for the treatment of coronavirus in pregnant women and newborns. At the same time, it turned out that the data are contradictory. Previously, researchers from China, the United States and Italy argued that COVID-19 is more severe in pregnant women. However, it is now clear that some of these women have coronavirus, just like the average for the population, often asymptomatic. And the incidence is higher.

It is necessary to hospitalize pregnant women in the same way as other adults, with moderate and severe coronavirus. In this case, a mild form of the disease can be treated on an outpatient basis under the supervision of a gynecologist and therapist.

At the same time, so far, doctors have not received evidence that the coronavirus can be transmitted in breast milk from mother to child. It is also not yet clear whether intrauterine infection is possible. In total, according to the latest data, writes TASS, in sick mothers, newborns with coronavirus are born in only 8% of cases.
