PREG­NANT women who get Covid-19 are more likely to need in­ten­sive care, a study has found.

An in­ter­na­tional team of re­searchers, in­clud­ing ex­perts from the World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion ex­perts, re­viewed ev­i­dence from 77 stud­ies in­volv­ing 11,000 preg­nant women ad­mit­ted to hospi­tal with Covid-19.

They found that preg­nant women were more likely to need ad­mis­sion to ICU and ven­ti­la­tion, com­pared with non-preg­nant women of a sim­i­lar age.
