I am pregnant. Is there extra reason for concern?
No. There is no evidence that being pregnant increases a woman’s risk for getting COVID-19, or her risk of developing severe symptoms if she has the disease. There is also no evidence to suggest an increased risk of miscarriage or birth defects attributable to this virus. The currently available information indicates that the effects of infection with COVID-19 in a pregnant women are no different for the child and the mother than for other infectious diseases that cause a fever.
