Altered infective competence of the human gut microbiome in COVID-19

The study “Altered infective competence of the human gut microbiome in COVID-19” examines the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on the gut microbiome, particularly in asymptomatic-to-moderate COVID-19 cases. Here is a detailed summary: In summary, this study reveals that SARS-CoV-2 infection, even in milder forms, can significantly alter the gut microbiome’s infective competence. It underscores the complex interactions between the virus, the human host, and the gut microbiome, with potential implications for understanding the pathogenesis and treatment of COVID-19.
