Author(s): Salma A Mohammed and Ahmed A Osman
Abstract: In December 2019, the first cases of the COVID-19 outbreak were reported in Wuhan, China, which was transmitted worldwide . As of July 3 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that 10,719,946 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed globally, along with 517,337 coronavirus related deaths. We aimed to highlight the important healthcare needs of pregnant women during the COVID-19 pandemic. During the coronavirus pandemic, pregnant women need more care regarding their preexisting health conditions, especially if they have COVID-19. Obstetricians and gynecologists need to collaborate with other disciplines to help contain this pandemic.
