Sore throat in COVID-19: comment on “Clinical characteristics of hospitalized patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection: A single arm meta-analysis”.


We read with interest the recent meta-analysis by Sun et al. that included 50466 patients with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

In addition, they reported that "by reading the included literature, we found that diarrhea, hemoptysis, headache, sore throat, shock, and other symptoms are rare".
