Abstract

COVID-19, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), is now a worldwide spreading pandemic. Most of the attention is directed to the upper and lower respiratory airways, however, it appears that the gastrointestinal tract is also inoculated and infected. In this regards, celiac disease patients are a potential high-risk group for the corona virus infection and the endoscopist communities should be aware of their professional risks.
