NEW: Symptom Checker | Coronavirus Resources

Transcript

If you’re diagnosed with COVID-19, the current evidence suggests everything will be fine. But it’s still early days, and we don’t know really how it affects babies when mothers are infected early in pregnancy. So you really have to try and avoid that, but evidence from other coronaviruses suggest that it’s actually okay and you don’t pass it through placenta to the baby.

Nonetheless, you have to be super cautious when you’re pregnant, wash your hands on a regular basis, and while this epidemic’s on, don’t come in contact with other people, or a lot of them, unnecessarily.
