See a doctor: Approximately 3% to 40% COVID infected patients may present with GI symptoms. Currently, there is still no effective treatment approved for COVID-19. Most disease related symptoms are managed symptomatically. Bring your mother to see a doctor for evaluation and to rule out any other causes.

COViD 19: COVID 19 can include GI symptoms. If she has significant abdominal pain, her doctor should be contacted. Per pain may or may not be COVID- related. If pain is unbearable than she should be evaluated at an emergency room.

Agree with Drs F&W: Protect yourself by wearing a mask, sanitising your hand often and keeping at a safe distance from your parents. If either of them develops breathing difficulty, call an ambulance to have them transported to a hospital.
