A NOVEL coronavirus was discovered in the lower respiratory tract of a group of patients with pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, in December 2019.1 The disease caused by this novel coronavirus officially was named coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) by the World Health Organization on February 11, 2020, and it has a highly infectious rate and a high mortality rate. As of April 1, there were 754,948 global infections of COVID-19, with 36,571 deaths (https://www.who.int/diagnostics_laboratory/EUL/en/).

A novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was identified as the cause of a cluster of pneumonia in Wuhan, China at the end of 2019. Since then more than four million confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have been reported around the globe. The current gold standard for etiological diagnosis is reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) analysis of respiratory tract specimens, but the test has a high false-negative rate due to both nasopharyngeal swab sampling error and viral burden.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on maternal, perinatal and neonatal outcomes by performing a systematic review of available published literature on pregnancies affected by COVID-19. METHODS: We performed a systematic review to evaluate the effects of COVID-19 on pregnancy, perinatal and neonatal outcomes. We conducted a comprehensive literature search using PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure Database and Wan Fang Data until 20 April 2020 (studies were identified through PubMed alert after that date). For the research...

Conclusions: This study demonstrates that, unlike the clinically used 18F-FDG, 64Cu-Ybt can potentially be used as a highly selective PET probe to not only image infectious, but also tumor-infiltrating bioengineered bacteria.
