Coronavirus and pregnancy: Should pregnant women self-isolate?
Coronavirus cases are rapidly multiplying around the world. In the UK, authorities including Boris Johnson have said it appears the UK is now nearing the peak of the curve where cases could double every day. But what is the official advice for pregnant women?
Mr Johnson has urged everyone to avoid all but non-essential social contact with others as the number of deaths in the UK hit 35.
Speaking after a Cobra meeting on Monday in the first of a series of daily meetings expected in the coming days and possibly weeks, the PM said it looks as though we are approaching the “fast growth” phase of the curve.
He added that the advice to avoid non-essential contact is particularly important for people who are over-70, for people who are pregnant and for people with underlying health conditions.
