More than 600 babies have been born prematurely and needing critical care to mothers hospitalised by Covid-19 in the UK. Women are warned they are up to three times more likely to have an early birth with the virus.
Data uncovered by The Independent from a national maternity conference shows that, out of 3,306 babies born to mothers admitted to hospital with Covid-19 between the start of the pandemic in March 2020 and July 2021, 694 were born prematurely and of those 604 were so ill they had to be admitted to a critical care unit.
