Whoa! 29/210 (13.7%) of asymptomatic women admitted for delivery tested positive for the in NYC (3/29 developed fever later) This is very higher number and a reflection of the situation in NYC

Not shocking when you look at the positivity rates on a daily basis. For all of NY they had a positivity rate of 50% on 4/1/2020. Today, 40% positivity rate. 20,621 tested, positive=8,236

But those are positives of people who presumably have serious symptoms. Not random pregnant women.

Wonder if we can extrapolate that there might be 8 asymptomatic people out there for every symptomatic patient.

This is interesting data, but pregnant women are not an unbiased sample set. They are in the hospital all the time, especially leading up to delivery. Possible this is more an indication of nocosomial transmission at these hospitals than anything else.

They are in MD offices weekly up until delivery if pregnancy is going well, not in the hospital. It would be interesting to find out more

They only looked at them over a 2 day window before discharge.

If they are really asx, not presymptomatic, this is great news. Would suggest cfr is much lower than previously suspected.
