SARS-CoV-2 impact on pregnant women is not well known yet. Some authors demonstrated that lung ultrasound can give similar results if compared to chest computed tomography and better results if compared to chest x-rays without radiations and limited risks for mother and fetus.
The Lung Ultrasound Score (LUS) can be used to asses the entity and monitor the evolution of lung impairment.
Some authors described an artifact, the "light beam", as a typical ultrasound sign in COVID-19 positive patients.
With our study we hypothesize to understand the prevalence of this sign and other ultrasound signs in pregnant COVID-19 positive patients.

- Diagnostic Test: Lung ultrasound
Lung ultrasound signs in Covid 19 positive pregnant patients
- Light Beam [ Time Frame: 24 hours after admission ]Evaluate the prevalence of the light beam sign
- Ultrasound patterns [ Time Frame: 24 hours after admission ]Evaluate the prevalence of ultrasound signs and patterns during pregnancy
- Lung ultrasound score [ Time Frame: 24 hours after admission ]Evaluate if the Lung ultrasound score relates with the clinical presentation of the patient
- Illness severity [ Time Frame: 24 hours after admission ]Evaluate if the lung ultrasound score relates with the prognosis
- Length of stay [ Time Frame: 24 hours after admission ]Evaluate if the lung ultrasound score relates with the length of stay
