Possible long-term endocrine-metabolic complications in COVID-19: lesson from the SARS model.Endocrine. 2020 06; 68(3):467-470.E
The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is centralizing the interest of the scientific world.
