On Friday, May 22, the American Journal of Clinical Pathology has released a study about 16 pregnant women. It is believed to be the biggest research which is related to the study of the placenta of pregnant women.

Shockingly, the placenta was found to be injured in all pregnant women included in the study. The placenta is "an organ that develops in your uterus during pregnancy. This structure provides oxygen and nutrients to your growing baby. It removes waste products from your baby's blood."

The type of injury on each placenta is the result of abnormal blood flow between mother and child. This means that abnormal flow of blood can affect the system of delivering oxygen and removing waste from the mother to the fetus. The United States Center said that the corona virus is unlikely to spread from mother to child.
