Maternal mortality rates in the U.S. have climbed 33% since the start of the pandemic.

This is according to a new study published by JAMA Network on Tuesday.

The study reveals how the pandemic continues to disproportionately affect the health care of racial and ethnic minorities in the United States.

The researchers analysed data from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) to see how COVID-19 affected maternal deaths during or within 42 days after pregnancy.

The report found overall maternal mortality increased by 33% since the start of the pandemic.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention added that access to care, medical mistrust and systemic discrimination are a few of the inequities that contribute to more COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths.
