The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has changed the way we live our lives. It is essential to take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and others from the virus. The most important thing you can do is to avoid contact with people who have COVID-19, whether they are symptomatic or not. It is also important to stay up to date with the latest information about the virus.
Pregnant women and those who have recently been pregnant are at a higher risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 compared to non-pregnant people. Additionally, those who contract the virus during pregnancy are at an increased risk of having a preterm birth. To stay informed and protect yourself from the virus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for updates. Additionally, NewYork-Presbyterian provides more information on the evolving situation.
It is also important to take measures to protect those who are at high risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 in settings where there are multiple risks of exposure.
