The Ministry of Health (MoH) has said that the risk of pregnant women contracting the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is similar to that of others and that as of Thursday two cases involved pregnant women.
Dr Saif al Abri, Director General of Disease Surveillance and Control at the MoH stated that the pregnant women were doing fine. “Both are at home and in stable condition and health,” he said.
MoH stated it is committed to providing health and therapeutic care to women, especially pregnant women and that all pregnant women must attend their follow-ups regularly in health institutions, where all preventive measures have been taken.
“If a pregnant woman develops any warning symptoms (such as shortness of breath, severe headache, convulsion, vaginal bleeding, severe abdominal pain, leaking from vagina, face/leg oedema, or leg pain), she should immediately visit the nearest health institution,” MoH stated.
