Sir,

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.[1] 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.[2],[3],[4] 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.
