Abstract:   (442 Views)
 Coronavirus disease (COVID) has had a growing outbreak around the world. China reported COVID-19 infection for the first time in December 2019. Symptoms of this disease often include respiratory symptoms, but gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea) were also reported in COVID-19 infection. Coronavirus transmits through direct droplets, contact, or fomites. However, other modes of transmission include airborne, fecal-oral, blood-borne, and mother-to-child transmission. Furthermore, studies showed that the virus was excreted through the feces. Case presentation: In this study, we   introduced two cases of the disease in a mother and her daughter, who were contaminated with the disease through contact with the contaminated food. Conclusion: Due to the possibility of oral-fecal transmission, food hygiene is recommended.
