What inspired you to write this piece?

I have been working on viral hepatitis (hepatitis B and E) and liver diseases for over two decades. As a virologist, I knew the gastrointestinal (GI) manifestations, including liver dysfunction, by human coronaviruses. The recent emergence of SARS-CoV-2 and associated digestive symptoms, notably liver inflammation in a proportion of COVID-19 patients, attracted my interest to write this article on ‘coronaviral’ hepatitis.
