Research has demonstrated that coronavirus infections can cause serious extrapulmonary consequences that impact multiple organ systems, including the gastrointestinal tract, in addition to manifesting as primary lung infections. Clinical signs of digestive symptoms have been observed in individuals, including anorexia, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.As the active period of the disease increased, the symptoms of the gastrointestinal tract became more pronounced, especially in patients with symptoms of anorexia, the high rate was 41.7%. Our study showed that COVID-19 patients showed gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea (25%), anorexia (41.7%), and nausea (18.3%) and abdominal pain (15%). However, the main mechanism of origin of symptoms in the gastrointestinal tract has not been fully studied.
