pandemic is growing and more and more cases are being registered, correlation between disease and gender
response if any should be examined.
Summary: pandemic of COVID-19 is evolving which reported its first case in Wuhan, PRC, considerable
amount and efforts are only directed towards containment of the virus. The effect of the pandemic on pregnant
women physiologically, psychologically and classification by socioeconomic status can give better trends
to study. Further mortality rate between men and women and reason behind it can be evidently proved after
through study. After all, one solution to different problems cannot be implemented. Middle East respiratory
syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) also belonging to similar family of the
coronavirus have more things to study regarding which strategy should be employed in containing the viral
spread. Vertical transmission is not seen yet but occurrences of sporadic deaths of infants or still birth could
be explained after research.

with specific gender. Psychological state in the time of distress always been a cause of worry. It worries more
when identified in pregnant state. All these aspects need to studied thoroughly
