Paper Abstract We read with interest the articles by Xiao et al 1 and Du et al 2 regarding severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS Co-V 2) shedding in feces, staining of viral nucleocapsid protein in the cytoplasm of gastrointestinal epithelial cells, and the characterization of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors across tissues in the human body. The relationship between coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), intestinal ACE2 expression, and gastrointestinal symptoms is worth exploring further, and may offer unique clues to the pathogenesis of intestinal inflammation.
