First, thank you very much for this post!
Having a pregnant wife, I am trying to find more about the risks to her and the child, but could only find:
Articles about a study looking at 9 cases: https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1242033/coronavirus-uk-can-pregnant-women-pass-coronavirus-to-babies-symptoms-latest
An article discussing effects of other coronaviruses on pregnancy: https://www.thelancet.com/joQurnals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30311-1/fulltext
Does anyone have better information about the impacts of Covid-19?
Hey ianps, sorry for the silence (really busy time for me). I just found an article suggesting that in 4 tracked instance of infection in pregnant women, both the mother and baby have been fine, and the virus was not transmitted to the child. https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fped.2020.00104/full.
Thanks for replying, much appreciated! I have seen a bit more discussion on the topic in the news recently, I saw these two good articles:
(I though there was a very good BBC article as well, but could not find it now).
PS: in general, thank you again for your post. I was able to buy the essentials much before everyone ran to the supermarkets this last week.
