The gastrointestinal tract, like the respiratory system, is affected by COVID-19. Viral particles replicate in enterocytes. In addition, immune system disorders are important in the pathogenesis of COVID-19. Many commensal microbes are known to have immunomodulatory effects, and changes in the composition of the microbiota can lead to immune system dysfunction.
