The COVID-19 pandemic is spreading alarmingly in India and every day more and more people are testing positive for the virus. As per the latest official reports there are now 21393 positive cases in the country. The death toll stands at 681. The elderly and people with underlying health conditions are at a greater risk of severe complications of this disease. Another vulnerable group according to experts may be pregnant women. Recognising this risk the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) says that asymptomatic pregnant women must go in for tests in health facilities where they were expected to deliver.
