  The current pandemic outbreak of COVID‐19 is caused by the novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is a dangerous disease that can occur both in the form of an acute respiratory viral infection of a mild course and in a severe form. The most common complication of the disease is viral pneumonia, which can lead to respiratory distress syndrome and subsequent acute respiratory failure. Although the main symptoms are fever, cough, and shortness of breath, some patients also develop gastrointestinal and hepatic manifestations. Viral RNA was isolated from stool samples from COVID-19 patients, raising concerns about faecal-oral transmission in addition to airborne droplets [1].
