The novel coronavirus infection (SARS-CoV-2 infection), which appeared in the Wuhan region of China in late 2019, spread rapidly in a short time. A few months later, it was ac-cepted as pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organization) and became an important threat to public health. The death rate in cases occurring in China was around 2%. Although it is thought that pregnancy is not a risk factor in the course of COVID-19 disease, it is often seen in which the cases were in the third trimester. It is striking that the maternal and neonatal implications of these infected cases during the late pregnancy period were quite good. Further studies examining more cases in the first and second trimesters, in order to determine long-term results and to clarify the risk of vertical transmission are needed.
2019'un sonlarında Çin'in Wuhan bölgesinde ortaya çıkan yeni koronavirüs enfeksiyonu (SARS-CoV-2 enfeksiyonu) kısa sürede hızla yayıldı. Birkaç ay sonra, DSÖ (Dünya Sağlık Örgütü) tarafından salgın olarak kabul edildi ve halk sağlığı için önemli bir tehdit haline geldi. Çin'de meydana gelen vakalarda ölüm oranı %2 civarındaydı. COVID-19 hastalığı sırasında gebeliğin bir risk faktörü olmadığı düşünülse de, genellikle COVID-19'a rastalanan vakalar üçüncü trimesterde idi. Bu enfekte vakaların geç gebelik dönemindeki anne ve yenidoğan etkilerinin oldukça iyi olması dikkat çekicidir. Uzun dönem sonuçlarını belirlemek ve vertikal geçiş riskini açıklığa kavuşturmak için birinci ve ikinci trimesterde daha fazla vakayı inceleyen daha ileri çalışmalara ihtiyaç vardır.
