Core Tip This ongoing study aims to investigate the potential reciprocal influence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and pre-existing cirrhosis. To date, it has included 332 patients with COVID-19 admitted to three Italian hospitals during the current pandemic, as well as two large cohorts of hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients from real-world antiviral treatment (pangenotypic sofosbuvir/velpatasvir combination) studies. Despite the limited COVID-19 sample size, cirrhosis was found to be associated with higher mortality, with the majority of deaths related to cirrhosis of metabolic origin. The very low prevalence of COVID-19 in the HCV cohorts supports a possible protective role of HCV antibodies.
