Two days earlier, she learned that she was positive for Covid-19. Suellen Adan Silva Brotas, who was expecting her third child, a little girl, has passed away “in her sleep. Her only symptoms were headache and cough. She was breathing normally, so the hospital said there was no need to bring her,” his sister-in-law, Rosy, testified to regional media.

The importance of vaccination

This mourning is a reminder of how important the vaccination against Covid-19 is. Thus, since April 3, 2021, it has been extended to pregnant women from the second trimester, with or without comorbidity, as highlighted a note from the Directorate General of Health. They will be able to benefit from Moderna or Pfizer type vaccines. The High Authority of Health, in November 2020, reported that women “entering their third trimester of pregnancy and pregnant women with co-morbidities” are more likely to develop a severe form of Covid-19. A study, published on March 25, 2021, in theAmerican Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology has shown the efficacy of messenger RNA vaccines (Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna) in pregnant and breastfeeding women. Reassuring news for the most skeptical.
