Abstract

A 27-year-old woman (gravida 2, para 1) was transported to the regional university hospital in gestational week (GW) 34 + 4 due to a three-day history of fever, abdominal pain and reduced foetal movements. She had developed a dry cough one day prior to the admission (Figure S1). The woman, was slightly overweight (BMI 27 kg/m2 ) but otherwise healthy. She had normal antenatal check-ups and an obstetric ultrasound at GW 32 + 2 showed a normal foetal weight deviation of +8%1 .
