Dear Colleagues!

The ongoing COrona VIrus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic provides the medical community with new challenges in terms of healthcare organization, treatment, vaccination, psychological care, ethics, and social policy.

During this time, significant progress has been made in understanding the pathological mechanisms of the development of severe forms of the disease and the long-term consequences.

A special issue of the Sechenov Medical Journal (No. 2 for 2020) dedicated to COVID-19, attracted great interest within the professional community with a wide range of readers, and opened up the opportunity for a productive discussion of the results obtained by leading Russian experts.

At the same time, the features of the course and treatment of COVID-19 remain poorly studied for specialist patient categories such as pregnant women and women in labor. The same is true regarding the impact of the virus on the fetus and newborn.

Therefore, the Editorial Board of the journal considered it appropriate to devote a special issue to these problems, in which leading experts from different countries summarize the world data and presented their own.

We are convinced that in this difficult time only close international cooperation along with the sharing of experience and knowledge can contribute to our common success in reducing maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality associated with COVID-19.
