Seroepidemiology of seasonal influenza virus among unvaccinated pregnant women in Lagos, Nigeria.

This study revealed that seasonal influenza circulates with co-morbidities in pregnant women in Lagos. This may exacerbate their immunosuppressed state and lead to complication in pregnancy. Apt treatment of influenza-like illness should be considered in such women. Furthermore, there is need for enhanced surveillance including monitoring of the potential transmissibility of influenza to the foetus and newborns. We therefore recommend sturdy advocacy on preventing exposure to influenza virus, its optimal early diagnosis, vaccination and disease management in pregnancy. PMID: 32920577 [PubMed - in process]
