Among the 272 women with COVID-19 symptoms, 44 were admitted to an intensive care unit, 23 received mechanical ventilation and two died, the authors said. About 98% of all the pregnancies completed during hospitalization resulted in live births.

In a separate CDC study of 105 hospitalized pregnant women with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, 41% were admitted for COVID-19 illness and the rest for obstetric reasons. About 80% of those admitted for obstetric reasons were asymptomatic.
