Abstract

GONZALEZ P, Rogelio et al. Pregnancy and novel coronavirus: Worldwide reported experience. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2020, vol.85, suppl.1, pp.S111-S121. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262020000700016.

Introduction:

The World Health Organization has recently reported that the new focus of the global pandemic of Covid-19 disease is the American continent.

Objective:

To conduct a literature review on the international experience of the Covid 19 pandemic and pregnancy.

Method:

A PubMed database search is performed for the keywords Pregnancy / Pregnant / Novel Coronavirus / SARS-CoV-2 / Covid-19, from November 1, 2019 to May 21, 2020.

Results:

A total of 365 articles were initially selected according to the designed search strategy. The total of articles reviewed according to the criteria was 42. The selected clinical series accumulated a total of 1098 pregnant women and Covid-19 disease. The most frequent comorbidities were hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and asthma. Mortality in relation to the total number of patients was 1.2% and transmission to the newborn was 1.7% (15 of 875).

Conclusion:

The information obtained allows us to infer that the clinical presentation of the disease is at least equivalent to that of non-pregnant women of the same age. Given the severity of the reported SARS-CoV-2 disease, the lessons learned must be quickly assimilated and used in the context of the national epidemic situation.

Keywords : Pregnancy; pregnant women; Novel coronavirus; SARS-CoV-2; Covid-19; Chile.
