Among the key findings of the study, published online in Gastroenterology:

A significant portion of coronavirus patients experience diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and/or abdominal discomfort before the onset of respiratory symptoms.

Viral RNA is detectable in fecal samples from suspected cases, indicating that the virus sheds into the stool
Viral gastrointestinal infection and potential fecal-oral transmission can last even after viral clearance from the respiratory tract.
