Abstract :

Novel corona virus (SARS-COV-2) is a new strain of corona virus causing COVID-19, first identified in Wuhan City, China. It was declared as a pandemic by the WHO on 11 March 2020. Pregnancy alters the body’s immune system and response to viral infections, therefore, pregnant females are related with more severe symptoms as compared to general population. Not much studies and guidelines are clearly available for the management of pregnant females with COVID-19. We are presenting a case of 20 weeks pregnancy with COVID -19 POSITIVE and how we managed the patient, during the second, deadly wave of pandemic. We hope this case report would be helpful for the clinicians to deal with pregnant patients with COVID 19, keeping in mind two lives are at risk.
