Pregnancy has 10% mortality in dengue
The incidence of dengue in pregnancy is very low, but it is on considerable rise, especially in India. Although many cases may remain asymptomatic or manifest a mild form of disease, severe manifestations like severe dengue with hemorrhagic manifestations and shock can also occur and these are potentially life-threatening both to the mother and the baby.

According to a study by Dr Laxmi Maru and Dr Astha Jain from Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College, Maharaja Yashwantrao Hospital, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, maternal mortality in dengue cases is 10%, which otherwise is round about 0.4% in India and 0.1% in western countries under normal circumstances.

Also the mortality in sever dengue cases with haemorrhage or shock is 33 %.
