The new emerging severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV2) causes the pandemic problem of COVID-19 at present. This disease was first reported in pneumonia patients in China before it causes worldwide problem. This disease affects any age group. The pregnant woman might be affected. There are some reports on pregnant women with COVID-19. The interesting concern is on the transplacental transmission of SARS-CoV2 pathogen to cause infection in newborns. Here, the authors summarized on available data on 57 pregnant women with COVID-19.,, Of these 57 cases, there is no vertical transmission. This observation is similar to that seen in previous MERS-CoV infection. Since the placental pore barrier is very small, the big size coronavirus should not be able to pass across it.
