Mississippi health officials say stillbirths among unvaccinated pregnant women have DOUBLED compared to before the pandemic

One study last month from the University of California, Irvine Medical Center found that women undergoing childbirth while infected with COVID-19 were 5.7 times more likely to end up in intensive care units at 5.2 percent compared to 0.9 percent of women without Covid. Additionally, about 0.1 percent of mothers with the virus died in comparison with 0.01 percent of those who weren’t infected, a 10-fold difference.
