The National Institutes of Health will support a four-year study on the potential long-term effects of COVID-19 on women infected with SARS-CoV-2 during pregnancy. The study will periodically assess about 4,100 patients with SARS-CoV-2 during pregnancy who gave birth at hospitals in NIH’s Maternal-Fetal Medicine Unit Network; their offspring will be evaluated for neurologic symptoms and cardiovascular conditions. The effort is part of NIH’s Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery initiative, which aims to understand COVID-19’s long-term effects, including on racial and ethnic minority groups disproportionately affected by the virus.
