Core Tip Liver involvement in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is either due to viral cytotoxicity or secondarily to systemic immune dysregulation. Patients with pre-existing liver disease are at higher risk of disease progression, morbidity, and mortality. Chronic liver disease with COVID-19 should be managed as per the standard guidelines, with education on hand hygiene, social distance, and face masks to reduce hospital admissions. There is no evidence that currently available vaccines for severe acute respiratory syndrome will have any complications different from other inactivated vaccines and are recommended for patients with pre-existing liver disease, hepatocellular carcinoma, or liver transplant recipients.
