Abstract

Diarrhea, vomiting and fever are common symptoms in pediatrics; on the other hand, recent studies have shown that, gastrointestinal symptoms are increasing in patients with COVID-19. This fact indicates the need to develop a screening and diagnostic algorithm in dealing with a patient with gastroenteritis in the epidemic SARS-CoV-2.
