FIGO COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Statement

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a new pathogen of high contagious abilities.

Although males seem to be more affected than females, as yet very little is known about the effect of COVID-19 on pregnant women and infants.

Based on the only set of available COVID-19 data, being a small series of women from Wuhan, China, there is no evidence that pregnant women are more at risk than the general population and there is no evidence that the virus can be transmitted to the baby during pregnancy.
