The new coronavirus (Covid 19) has become a hazardous threat due to its prevalence worldwide. Pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to this infectious disease because their immune system is already slightly compromised during pregnancy, making them more susceptible to viral infections. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate abortion due to this disease in different countries of the world. Thirty-six articles were analyzed by searching the web of science, Google Scholar, Pubmed databases for the following keywords: Covid 19 and abortion, Covid 19 and fetus, and Covid 19. Thirteen out of the 36 articles were used, and the rest were excluded from the study due to being unrelated to the subject. Articles related to the new coronavirus and abortion were then carefully studied and analyzed. It was shown in various studies that, due to the infection and immune system compromise during pregnancy, the Coronavirus could play a role in abortion and stillbirth. So, a prognosis of this threat could help pregnant women observe the health protocols during the pandemic more seriously so that they are more protected against being infected.
