THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC AND MATERNAL AND NEWBORN HEALTH
Keywords:covid19, pandemic, maternal, newborn health
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared SARS-COV-2 (COVID 19) a pandemic, which put the whole world in front of a global crisis, including the health of the population, especially pregnant women. The review of the literature shows that the health condition of COVID-19 and pregnant women and newborns is considered as an urgent problem, and scientific research is intensively ongoing around the world, their number exceeds 1000 units. It should be noted that despite such intense scientific activity, reliable, category A and B (taking into account the principles of evidence-based medicine) conclusions have not been obtained. Also, there are works dedicated to other issues, e.g. study of the placenta, development of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in newborns.
