  • Description:
    [January 22 - December 28, 2020] Monitoring the impact of COVID-19 during pregnancy can protect pregnant women and their babies. About the Data : This page is updated weekly. The cases reported are only confirmed cases with laboratory evidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection. There are currently 56 U.S.-affiliated jurisdictions reporting cases of COVID-19. This includes 50 states, District of Columbia, Guam, New York City, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S Virgin Islands. Because only about a third of case report forms include information on pregnancy status, these numbers likely do not include all pregnant women with COVID-19 in the United States and must be interpreted with caution. The completeness of this variable continues to improve each week. Increases in the total number of cases of COVID-19 among pregnant women are largely due to the updating of pregnancy status among already reported cases. Case numbers reported on other websites may differ from what is posted on CDC’s website because CDC’s overall case numbers are validated through a confirmation process with each jurisdiction. Differences between reporting jurisdictions and CDC’s website may occur because of the timing of reporting and website updates. The process used for finding and confirming cases displayed by other sites may differ. Case counts may fluctuate from week to week due to data quality and cleaning processes.As of October 2020, CDC will exclude reports of cases of COVID-19 among pregnant women who are younger than age 9 and older than age 54 in the weekly reporting. Based on review of data quality, cases reported as pregnant with ages less than 9 or greater than 54 are less likely to be true pregnancies, and more likely to be data errors. Cases with unknown age are still included.
