COVID-19 in Patients With Pre-existing Cirrhosis (COVID-Cirrhosis-CHESS2002): A Multicentre Observational Study


Brief description of study

COVID-19 pandemic with SARS-CoV-2 infection has become a global challenge. Though most cases of COVID-19 are mild, the disease can also be fatal. Patients with liver cirrhosis are more susceptible to damage from SARS-CoV-2 infection considering their immunocompromised status. The spectrum of disease and factors that influence the disease course in COVID-19 cases with liver cirrhosis are incompletely defined. This muilticentre observational study (COVID-Cirrhosis-CHESS2002) aims to study the clinical characteristics and risk factors associated with specific outcomes in COVID-19 patients with pre-existing liver cirrhosis.
