Maeda Y, Nakamura M, Ninomiya H, et al. Trends in intensive neonatal care during the COVID-19 outbreak in Japan. Arch Dis Child Fetal Neonatal Ed 2021;106:327–29. doi: 10.1136/archdischild-2020-320521

The authors have noticed an error in table 1 of their short report recently published. They mistakenly showed values for weeks 10–17 of 2019 instead of those for weeks 2–9 of 2020. The values for ‘Births before 33 6/7 weeks’ and ‘Births between 34 0/7 and 36 6/7 weeks’ of Table 1 should be amended as follows:

Births before 33 6/7 weeks

Weeks 2-9, 2020: 83, instead of 99

Difference (% change): 17 (20.5), instead of 33 (33.3)

Births between 34 0/7 and 36 6/7 weeks

Weeks 2-9, 2020: 207, instead of 211

Difference (% change): 17 (8.2), instead of 21 (10.0)

Accordingly, the second sentence of the subsection ‘Preterm births’ should also be corrected to “The number of preterm births showed a statistically significant reduction in weeks 2–9 vs weeks 10–17 of 2020: births before 33 6/7 gestational weeks from 83 to 66 (aIRR, 0.71; 95% CI, 0.50 to 1.00; p=0.05) and births between 34 0/7 and 36 6/7 gestational weeks from 207 to 190 (aIRR, 0.85; 95% CI, 0.74 to 0.98; p=0.02) (figure 1 and table 1).
