Pregnant women may have a higher risk of being treated in hospital intensive care units or even needing ventilation if infected with coronavirus, a researcher at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday.

This new information, which has not been made public, contradicts some previous studies which showed that pregnant women may not be at higher risk of becoming ill enough to require treatment in the ICU if they are exposed to the coronavirus.

“There may be physiological changes in pregnancy that can increase the risk of severe illness, and severe illness has been linked to other viral respiratory infections in pregnant women. However, initial reports are unclear about the impact of Covid on pregnant women,” Sara Oliver of the National Center for Immunization and Disease Breathing CDC said during the Immunization Practices Advisory Committee meeting on Wednesday.

Pregnant women, for example, are far more susceptible to influenza.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, there has been limited data on what risks pregnant women can face with Covid-19 – if any – but now new information presented by Oliver at the ACIP meeting helped add to the scientific literature. The information is scheduled to be published in the CDC report on Thursday.

With numbers: The report includes information on 326,335 women aged 15 to 44 who had a coronavirus infection between January 22 and June 7, Oliver said. There were 8,207 pregnancies reported among women.

“This new report includes the largest US cohort of pregnant women with SARS-CoV-2 infection confirmed by a laboratory,” Oliver said in his presentation. “Among pregnant women, 31.5% were reported to be hospitalized compared to 5.8% of nonpregnant women.”

“Pregnant women are 50% more likely to be treated in intensive care units and 70% more likely to receive mechanical ventilation. Sixteen deaths were reported among pregnant women, in the same proportion as nonpregnant women,” Oliver added.

Oliver noted that a separate analysis previously found the risk of ICU admission and mechanical ventilation was actually lower among pregnant women with coronavirus and there was no statistically significant difference in the risk of death in hospital – so more research was needed.

“More complete data are needed to assess whether SARS-CoV-2 infection in pregnancy is associated with adverse pregnancy or neonatal outcome,” Oliver said.

“However, the results of this study indicate an increased risk of ICU admission and mechanical ventilation, which is a different proxy for severity, in pregnant women compared to non-pregnant women,” Oliver said. “However, the absolute risk of clinical intervention is still very low in this population.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
