[COVID-19] Over the past weeks, the world has been hit by a new virus called SARS-CoV-2. This virus, infinitely small and infinitely threatening, has brought most of the planet to a standstill. Scientific research has been very active and many teams around the world were rapidly mobilized to build up knowledge about this new virus and to fight a major public health crisis. Numerous publications have been published, including some on the gut microbiome and COVID-19.
We wanted to make a short, non-exhaustive synthesis on this topic in order to highlight some of the up-to-date discoveries and to share experts’ opinion of Pr. Joël Doré, Scientific Director of MetaGenoPolis and Micalis INRAE France and Pr. Harry Sokol, Hepato-gastroenterologist at the Saint Antoine Hospital in Paris, France.
