Can the novel coronavirus present with digestive symptoms instead of respiratory symptoms?

Clinical Symptoms

A: Yes. FEVER and RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS (including cough and shortness of breath) remain the most common presenting symptoms.

A new study came out today highlighting a subset of people who instead presented to hospitals with digestive symptoms (loss of appetite and diarrhea). The study alerts healthcare providers to consider alternative presentations of this new virus. I expect we will see more attention on digestive symptoms in the future. Here’s a nice summary of the most recent study.
