BEIJING, July 12 (Xinhua) -- There is currently no adequate evidence of the transmission of COVID-19 from pregnant women infected with the virus to their fetuses, according to a Chinese medical expert.

The severity of the illness of pregnant COVID-19 patients is similar to that of other patients, and the disease is not more likely to develop into serious cases for pregnant women, said Zhao Yangyu, head of the obstetrics department of the Peking University Third Hospital.

"According to researches from home and abroad, the conditions of expectant mothers who have recovered from the disease are generally good, and there is no proof of the necessity to terminate the pregnancy," Zhao said.

With the current normal treatment and methods on pregnant patients, the fetuses are safe, she added.
