The novel severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2; also known as 2019-nCoV) has played havoc worldwide, beginning with Wuhan, China in December 2019. As of 17 March 2020, there are 153 countries who have reported cases of infection caused by this virus [i.e., coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19)], with Italy becoming the new epicentre [1]. COVID-19 is a global public health emergency, and could cause devastating health issues during pregnancy. Pregnant women have a high propensity to acquire this infection due to their altered physiological and immunological function.
