posted on Feb 25, 2020

As per the Government of Canada website, COVID-19 (Corona Virus Disease 2019) is a disease that caused an outbreak of respiratory illness, including pneumonia, in Wuhan, China, in late 2019 and early 2020. Since that time, cases have been reported in a number of other areas, including Canada. There is very little known about the impact of COVID-19 on reproduction and pregnancy. However, pregnancy increases susceptibility to respiratory infections and severe respiratory infections in pregnancy can lead to preterm labour and delivery. For more information, please click here.
