Coronaviruses are important human and animal pathogens. At the end of 2019, a novel coronavirus (ie, SARS-CoV-2) was identified as the cause of a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, a city in the Hubei Province of China. By 2020, it rapidly spread until it became a pandemic that has spread throughout the world. SARS-CoV-2 disease (COVID-19) mainly manifests as a respiratory infection ranging from those of a mild upper respiratory symptom to severe pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and death. COVID-19 Severely affects patients with pre-existing comorbidities, such as patients with various types of kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes and elderly. All medical professionals, including nephrology clinicians, are tasked with rapidly adjusting their practice to withhold the spread of the virus, while providing the usual medical care to their patients. In this crosswords we hope to provide a basic and essential information in a simple manner describing the relationship between COVID-19 infection and kidney diseases.
