Abstract

During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19) outbreak, all patient categories have been affected, including one of the most fragile groups: pregnant women. Although experts provided general suggestions on the best treatment of pregnant women with suspicion of or confirmed COVID‐19, these considerations were mainly based on retrospective studies or case series.1-8 No prospective study is currently available about the treatment of patients with suspicion of or confirmed COVID‐19 during pregnancy. Moreover, no data are reported on the treatment of asymptomatic pregnant patients testing positive for COVID‐19 or pregnant patients admitted to delivery rooms.
