Core Tip In patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), history of hepatitis C infection accentuated severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) viral virulence and is a strong predictor of in-hospital mortality irrespective of baseline comorbidities, laboratory parameters, or COVID-19-induced liver injury. History of hepatitis C infection (HCV) in these patients seems to add a cumulative mortality risk to any clinical or laboratory profile. The mechanisms involved may be related to extra hepatic effects of HCV leading to enhanced ACE-2/TMPRSS mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 virus and subsequent endothelial dysfunction. The realization is important for better characterization of the disease and triage this sub-group as high risk for therapeutic or prophylactic measures like vaccines.
