The pandemic caused by the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus has also had repercussions in our region. Among others, pregnant women constitute a special group within the affected population.

Clinical Cases:

There are 6 reported cases of pregnant patients interrupted in Hospital Carlos Van Buren are reported until July 2020 with a positive PCR for SARS-CoV-2, where one was treated with severe pneumonia, 3 with mild symptoms and 2 were asymptomatic. The 100% was interrupted by caesarean section. 50% of the newborns were admitted to neonatology. Vertical transmission was not evident in any of them.


SARS-CoV-2 infection is not an immediate indication for cesarean section. However, a considerable increase in the tendency for the surgery has been observed. No clear evidence of vertical transmission has been observed, but better quality studies are needed.
