In all, from the beginning of the pandemic until July 11, 3.371 pregnant women were admitted to hospital with symptoms of the disease. The severity of their condition was exacerbated by the Delta variant, the study described.

According to data from the Health Authority of England, published on July 22, about 51.700 pregnant women have received the first dose and 20.600 the second.

This is a number that is far from the 606.500 pregnant women registered in England in 2020-2021 based on the registers of doctors who have taken them, the BBC reports.
