Pregnant women with COVID-19 are more likely than their non-pregnant counterparts to be admitted to an intensive care unit, receive invasive ventilation, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or die, according to a study of 461,825 women with symptomatic COVID-19 released this week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The analysis supports previous findings that pregnancy is associated with increased risk for ICU admission and invasive ventilation for COVID-19.

“In the current report, an increased risk for receiving ECMO and death was also observed, which are two additional important markers of COVID-19 severity that support previous findings,” the authors said.
