COVID-19 causes rate of stillbirths to double in Mississippi

Dobbs said there have been 72 fetal deaths in the state caused by COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic, not including miscarriages that may have occurred before the 20-week gestation mark, which is "twice the background rate of what would be expected."

Over the past year, there have also been seven pediatric deaths in the state due to COVID-19, including most recently a baby who was less than a year old.

"That's quite a number of tragedies that sadly would be preventable right now," Dobbs said.
