Antenatal Care and the Variant of Concern (VOC)-Omicron [B.1.1.529]

Liaqat Ali Khan*

The Coronavirus Infectious Disease-2019 (COVID-19) halted many in-person services in almost every sector of life, especially healthcare. Similarly, antenatal services that are crucial for better pregnancy outcomes were provided mostly through in-person visits before the pandemic. However, services like antenatal have been shifted: to virtual care in earlier waves of the pandemic. Similarly, in the ongoing Omicron (a variant of concern-VOC) Wave, the in-person visit; should be minimized as much as possible especially, to those in need of in-person visits. The antenatal care; should be strictly provided: through virtual care in association with home-care services, and in-person appointments should be bound to virtual services to minimize in-person visits that; should be managed: with standard protocols.
