COVID-19 Infection During Pregnancy and Risk of Neurodevelopmental Disorders in Offspring: Time for Collaborative Research

The current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has become the worst pandemic since the 1918 influenza pandemic (1). This novel viral infection, first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, spread around the world in just a few months, causing an overwhelming international health crisis that could affect up to one-third of humanity (1,2). COVID-19, which causes fever and mild to severe respiratory symptoms, is closely related to other coronaviruses (CoVs), such as SARS (SARS-CoV-1) and MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome CoV) (1).
