**NEWS ALERT—March 27, 2020, Update on Coronavirus and Pregnancy**

Two research teams in China presented details in the journal JAMA of 3 neonates who may have been infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in utero from mothers with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).[1][2]  In a corresponding JAMA editorial, Drs. David Kimberlin and Sergio Stagno of the University of Alabama at Birmingham cautioned that “at this time, these data are not conclusive and do not prove in utero transmission” and “more definitive evidence is needed before the provocative findings they report can be used to counsel pregnant women that their fetuses are at risk from congenital infection with SARS-CoV-2”.[3]
