All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) doctors said that 10 to 15% COVID-19 patients have only gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus disease) infection usually sees symptoms like cold, cough, sore throat, and fever. 

At the National Grand Round, a virtual platform for doctors to discuss trends and treatments for COVID-19, doctors said that the patients can also suffer a heart attack, stroke, clotting problems, kidney or liver dysfunction.

Dr Saurabh Kedia of AIIMS added that those people who have gastrointestinal symptoms should test for COVID-19 if they show any respiratory symptoms or if they have a history of contact with a positive patient.
