Description BACKGROUND: Pregnant women are susceptible to coronavirus infection due to physiological changes in the circulatory and immunological parameters.


AIM: The current study aimed to determine the demographic factors, clinical symptoms, and fetal-maternal outcomes and also compare the blood parameters and chest X-ray results among coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) positive and negative pregnant women.


MATERIALS AND METHODS: Complete blood count and Chest X-rays were performed as a routine in all pregnant women. Polymerase chain reaction for COVID-19 was performed for all women and the newborn.


RESULTS: The blood parameters revealed that a significantly greater proportion of COVID-19 positive pregnant women had abnormal hemoglobin, total leukocyte count, neutrophil count, lymphocyte count, monocyte count, bilirubin, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, and urea.

CONCLUSIONS: The present study provided crucial insights into epidemiological and clinical features during the perinatal period. Chest X-rays and blood routine examination are reliable findings to prevent COVID-19 complications among pregnant women.
