Coronavirus Disease 2019 and Gastrointestinal Manifestations

Author(s): Kajal Bansal* and Sonali Choudhari


A severe Coronavirus infection is currently producing a worldwide pandemic. It has varied effects on different people. The majority of patients have a fever and a respiratory infection, but some may have diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach pain. The incubation period, on the other hand, might last anywhere from 2 to 14 days without causing any symptoms. It's especially true in the case of gastrointestinal symptoms, where the patient can continually shed the virus even after the lung symptoms have gone away. Given the high number of patients infected with Coronavirus disease 2019 WHO report with gastrointestinal symptoms, patients should be screened for gastrointestinal symptoms. Every organ must be identified since it has the ability to contribute to community health problems and plays significant role in illness monitoring and management. This quick overview's purpose is to keep you informed about the consequences of severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2 infections on gastroenterology and hepatology departments, along with our new working techniques.

The goal of this study is to provide current information on Coronavirus disease 2019 symptoms in liver and gastrointestinal illnesses, as well as the pandemic's impact on prevention and treatment measures, with an emphasis on how existing procedures have been modified and what modifications may remain in the long term. This review provides gastroenterologists with new clinically relevant information.
