    1. Reported cases of COVID-19 pneumonia in pregnancy are milder and with good
    2. Pregnant women don't appear to contract the infection more likely than general population.
    3. Pregnant women with heart disease are at highest risk.
    4. The coronavirus pandemic increases the risk of perinatal anxiety and depression as well as domestic violence.
