Termination of fixed-term contract during pregnancy

Hi all,

I am employed with fixed-term contract. Due to the COVID-19, the company have put all employees in furlough. I was informed that my contract will be terminated because swiss goverment will no longer pay the furlough for those with fixed-term contracts. In the meantime I just found out I am pregnant.
I have read somewhere that I won`t have the legal protection of termination because of the limited contract. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance.

They can't terminate you, but they will just let the contract run out.
