COVID-19 has left many in a state of confusion and worry. When dealing with a pregnancy in the middle of this pandemic, a lot of questions can arise. A mother’s first concern becomes the health of her pregnancy or newborn. While we wish to provide answers to all of your questions, it’s unfortunately too soon to say anything definitively. The CDC simply hasn’t had enough time to collect the needed data to make conclusions. As a nation and community, all we can do is remain calm and vigilant. We can monitor our health, practice social distancing, stay home, and limit our travels. When we find ourselves having to run an errand, we can practice cleanliness.
It’s important to stay calm in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. When looking into new reports covering Coronavirus, check the source and compare the information to updates from the CDC and the WHO. If you are unsure about an article or something you have heard, you can call your OB-GYN to see if they can confirm. While not much is known about COVID-19, we will cover what is known in this blog.
What Is Covid-19?
How Can You Get COVID-19?
It is mainly believed that COVID-19 is spread from person to person by respiratory droplets through coughing and sneezing. This virus gains entrance into your body by contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth. Based on a new study COVID-19 can also live on surfaces and in an aerosolized form anywhere from a few hours to a few days, although those time frames could change as we gather more data.
