PACHECO-ROMERO, José. The coronavirus conundrum The end of the COVID-19 pandemic? The woman, the pregnant woman and the fetus Vaccines Future. Rev. peru. ginecol. obstet. [online]. 2022, vol.68, n.3, 00007.  Epub 22-Sep-2022. ISSN 2304-5132.

WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has recently said that 'The end of the pandemic is near. We are not there yet, but the end is in sight'. And U.S. President Joe Biden, with about 400 deaths per day in the U.S., has repeated that assertion. From what we can read in the literature, we are not there yet and there may be a long way to go. Although more is known about the virus and its ability to transform into variants and subvariants in order to enter the host more easily, some of these transformations are cause for concern. We make a brief review of what we have learned about morbidity and mortality due to SARS-CoV-2, how women's health has worsened, some alterations in sperm, defenses against the virus, reinfections, its unhealthy action on the pregnant woman, the fetus and the newborn, vaccines and boosters, and a vision of what lies ahead.
