ABSTRACT

There is a special group in this outbreak, pregnant women, which deserve our great attention because of the physiological changes during pregnancy that make them more susceptible to virus. Pregnant women have a higher risk of serious illness and death from viral infections during pandemics such as influenza and Ebola. We conducted a retro-prospective study of 30 pregnant women with COVID-19 admitted into Mugda Medical College and Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh from May 1 to June 30, 2020. This study aims to describe the clinical characteristics, treatment strategies, and outcomes of pregnancy during COVID-19 to aid practitioners in managing these unique patients. The pregnant patients represented 6.4% (30/469*100) of all reported patients with COVID-19 at these hospitals during this time. The median age of the women was 30 years (interquartile range, 28.75 to 35). Women had symptoms at a median of 36 (interquartile range 33-38) completed weeks? gestation and about 16.7% (5/30) patients presented without symptoms. The most common symptoms were abdominal pain (19, 63.3%) and cough (16, 53.3%). Fever was present in 13 of 30 patients (43.3%). A total of 14 of 30 women (46.7%) were nulliparous, 14 (46.7%) had previous history of caesarean section. a total of 25 women (83.3%) had been discharged alive, 3 women (10%) transferred to other facilities for treatment purpose of other issues rather that COVID-19. Total 2 women (6.7%) were departed during this time period. In the context of the covid-19 pandemic, ongoing collection of data on the outcomes of infection during pregnancy will remain important.
