Rubella or German measles is one of the dangerous viral infections for pregnant women. This is due to rubella infection can cause congenital rubella syndrome, which is a disability in the fetus. Rubella can be prevented by using a vaccine. With the vaccine, the body gets immunity from the virus. If pregnant women already have the virus immunity, then when exposed to the virus, the fetus will automatically be protected by the mother's immunity.
The symptoms of rubella infection are similar to those of other viral infections, such as headaches, fever, red eyes, joint pain, nasal congestion and are followed by the appearance of a red rash which then disappears on its own. If a pregnant woman is suspected to have rubella infection, then she should immediately undergo laboratory tests with blood tests to assess rubella antibodies.
In connection with your complaint, I suggest that your sister first conduct an examination to an obstetrician to determine the exact disease. Investigations by blood tests are very helpful to assess the presence of the virus. Unfortunately, if a pregnant woman has the infection, there is no treatment to prevent the virus from entering the fetus or removing the virus from the fetus. Risk assessment is very important to be known and evaluated by obstetricians. Medical decisions you can get from the conclusions made by doctors based on existing data and considerations, whether it should end or continue the pregnancy.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
