Our patients have expressed their concern about the expansion of the COVID-19 or Coronavirus, both in our country and around the world, which leads us to address this issue with transparency, security and peace of mind. The Reproduction Unit of HLA Vistahermosa has been effectively applying each and every one of the protocols required by the nNational Health authorities and the World Health Organization, paying special attention to a thorough disinfection and hygiene in our facilities.
Women who are undergoing fertility treatment should have the same concern and care of prevention as women who get pregant naturally, since pregnancy is a period in which the body is more susceptible to viral and bacteriological illnesses which cannot be combatted adequately.
The COVID-19 infection is transmissible by direct contact with an infected person, or by keeping a short distance of less than a meter when coughing, sneezing, or ejecting saliva or nasal secretions, coming with cough, fever, and shortness of breath. To avoid the risk of contagion, the most important tips are the following: wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your face, especially after visiting public places, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
The director of the UR HLA Vistahermosa Dr. José López Gálvez points out that elderly people are at the highest risk of catching the disease as well as those who have been diagnosed with pathologies such as heart diseases or immune-system disorders, and stress. Although there is no evidence that the Coronavirus may cause any negative effect on the fetus or a baby while in their mother´s womb, the contagion rate for pregnant women is similar to that of any adult. That is why it is important to follow the recommendations to prevent its contagion and spread.
