Maternal, Newborn and Infant Clinical Outcome Review Programme Rapid report, 2021: Learning from SARS-CoV-2 related and associated maternal deaths in the UK

Reports | Published: 08 Jul 2021

The second wave of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the UK brought further challenges to services and a higher burden of infection, together with new variants of concern. This rapid review was undertaken as part of the ongoing responsive remit of MBRRACE-UK to ensure that any new messages for care and services were identified in a timely manner in order to implement rapid change.

This report includes lessons identified from the care of women who died between 1 June 2020 and 31 March 2021, following a positive test for SARS-CoV-2 infection, or in whom SARS-CoV-2 infection was diagnosed at autopsy, as well as from the deaths of women whose care or engagement with care was influenced by changes as a consequence of the pandemic.
