laboratory, maternal and fetal outcomes in pregnancy with Covid-19 infection at dr. M. Djamil

symptoms were asymptomatic (47.1%) and without any comorbidities (76.5%). There were 3
patients who experienced critical symptoms (2.2%). Maternal mortality was found at 2.3% and
fetal death 4.7%. The values of d-dimer and NLR were found increasing significantly,
2025.35±1392.18 for d-dimer and 6.39±4.43 for NLR. Pregnancy terminations done for 77.9%
patients with cesarean section is the most method (83%). There were 4 cases (3.8%) of babies
