Clinical characteristics and laboratory results of pregnant women with COVID-19 in Wuhan, China

Retrospective study to review and compare clinical data including electronic medical records and laboratory tests from 30 pregnant and 42 nonpregnant patients admitted to a single hospital in Wuhan, China. No patients developed severe pneumonia during the study. Compared with the nonpregnant group, pregnant patients were admitted to hospital earlier (0.25 vs 11.00 days), presented milder symptoms, had a higher rate of asymptomatic infection (26.7% vs 0%), and shorter length of hospital stay (14.5 vs 17.0 days). Laboratory test results showed that levels of inflammation markers such as white blood cell count, neutrophil count and percentage, C-reactive protein, procalcitonin, and D-dimer were significantly higher in pregnant women, whereas mean lymphocyte percentage was significantly lower compared with nonpregnant women.
