Tami Kanningan didn’t remember how her son was born.When she was infected with new crown pneumonia in May 2021, she was pregnant for nearly 7 months.As the symptoms worsened, she was rushed to the hospital.

When admission was admitted, Campning’s expected due date was 11 weeks, and the lungs had begun to fail.The doctor was worried that she and the fetus could not persist, and asked her fiance to authorize the cesarean section.

"I asked,‘ Can both of them come over? ’” Matt Campan recalled the United States ’“ New York Times ”,“ They ca n’t answer. ”

According to a report released by the National Health Statistics on March 16, in 2021, 1,205 pregnant women in the United States died, an increase of 40%over 2020 and an increase of 60%over 2019.The Associated Press quoted a report from the U.S. Government’s Security Agency that the new crown pneumonia’s epidemic caused data to rise.

The New York Times said that before the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the mortal mortality rate in the United States has been higher among developed countries.In 2019, the mortal mortality rate in the United States was "born every 100,000 babies, and 20.1 pregnant women died."In 2021, this number rose to "the death of 100,000 babies, and 32.9 pregnant women died."

Data also reflects the expanding racial differences in the United States.In 2021, the mortality rate of black maternal mothers in the United States reached "69.9 black pregnant women were born every 100,000 babies", which was 2.6 times that of white maternal mothers.A study published on March 16th in the Magazine of Obstetrics and Gynecology showed that from 2020 to 2021, the mortality rate of American aboriginal maternal mothers has doubled.

Many maternal mothers like Canningan have faced other risks after passing the ghost gate.

The Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported that pregnancy makes women particularly susceptible to infectious diseases such as new crown pneumonia.During pregnancy, women’s hearts, lungs, and kidneys will be heavier.The new coronal virus may damage the placenta that provides oxygen and nutrition for the fetus, increasing the risk of blood vessel blockage and signs of eclampies.

The BBC said that a large -scale study showed that after the infection of new coronary pneumonia, the risk of death of pregnant women increased by 7 times; the possibility of premature birth and neonatal intensive care will also increase.

Today, the toxicity of Omiko’s poisonous strains is weakened, and the New York Times said that preliminary data shows that in 2022, the number of deaths of maternal women in the United States roughly fell to the level before the epidemic.

However, pregnant women still cannot take it lightly.39 -year -old Camp Ningan was slightly overweight when she was pregnant. Before she was infected with new crown pneumonia, she was diagnosed with gestational diabetes.

"I will instruct every patient that if they have the basic disease and pregnancy, they should avoid respiratory virus infection as much as possible." Tori Metz, a mother -in -law medical expert at the University of Utah, told the New York Times.

In the summer of 2021, American scientists are not sure whether the MRNA new crown vaccine is safe to pregnant women.It was not until August that year that the American Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) clearly supported pregnant women to vaccinate such vaccines.BBC said that most pregnant women who died of new crown pneumonia have not vaccinated vaccines.

The New York Times said that more than 70%of the American pregnant women inoculated the new crown vaccine, but only about 20%of pregnant women vaccinated the enhanced needle.

"Vaccination can prevent severe illnesses." CDC’s infant ending monitoring, research and prevention department Dana Dani Meni Delman told the New York Times, "We must constantly emphasize this."

Kanningan’s obstetrician encouraged her to vaccine, but she hesitated.Soon, she started nosebleeds.

Camp Ningan had felt short of breathing, but this did not attract her attention.The New York Times said that many symptoms of new crown pneumonia may be ignored by pregnant women because they are similar to some common symptoms during pregnancy.

When Kanningan was taken to the hospital, she was already in a state of acute respiratory distress. The doctor found the shadow -shaped shadow in her lungs.Her blood oxygen levels continued to decline and did not improve after childbirth.

"Her lungs are severely damaged." Campan’s intensive guardians, Omar Rahman, told the New York Times.

Campan’s friend McGregor visited her at the hospital and was shocked by the worsening of her condition."I can’t tell you how many bags are hung there, and how many tubes are inserted into her body," she said.

After 10 days of admission, Campning’s condition improved and no longer used artificial cardiopulmonary machines.At that time, she knew that during the severe illness, she had a son with a weight of only 1.36 kg at birth.

The New York Times said that in 2021, the proportion of premature babies in the United States rose sharply, reaching the highest level since 2007.This year, about 10.5%of all neonatal nationwide were premature, higher than 10.1%in 2020 and 10.2%in 2019.

The Campan couple named Kalom to her son.After staying for 66 days in the neonatal intensive care unit, Calham returned home, but the Campan couple made the worst plans."The doctor said that he would have a slow development, and it was very serious," said Callham’s father.

Canningan received a strict doctor’s order, and the doctor asked her to rest at home.7 months later, she was allowed to return to the workplace by the doctor.

The Canningan family’s economic situation was not good, and it was not aid from the US government. Even the application of food vouchers was rejected.

Canningan said: "We are workers. I used to work 7 days a week, 8 hours a day, and sometimes worked for 12 hours. When the epidemic hit in 2020, we spent a lot of savings and then became sick."

After restarting work, Kanningan still has to face migraine and short -term memory problems.She will forget to make an appointment with the doctor, forgot to get the newly bought things, and put the credit card on the automatic cash machine.She has a nightmare from time to time, dreaming of the scene in the hospital.

"I felt stuffy when I woke up," she said.The New York Times stated that this is quite common for this kind of syndrome, which is called severe custody.

Calham’s situation surprised everyone.After returning home from the hospital for a few months, he reached the normal level of development.Shortly after one year old, he would walk, and he was still a "little talk".

"If you ask him if he wants to take a bath, he will wait for you in the bathroom." His father said.

Kalom’s owner of the Niro Institute Luan Gros said that Carlm’s appetite is much better than his peers and often ask for "another one.""I gave him a nickname called" Super Baby "."
