Many countries and healthcare systems have been overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Importantly, there is an increasing amount of data on how COVID-19 may affect the liver and how pre-existing liver diseases might influence the clinical course of COVID-19. While many aspects remain poorly understood, it has become increasingly evident that pre-existing liver diseases and liver injury during the course of the disease have to be kept in mind when caring for patients with COVID-19. This session should provide information on  

·       Whether SARS-CoV-2 can directly infect the liver and what other mechanisms for SARS-CoV-2-induced liver injury have been discussed

·       General and liver-specific risk factors for SARS-CoV-2 infection and severe COVID-19

·       The impact of pre-existing liver disease on the outcome of COVID-19

·       The management of patients with liver disease during the COVID-19 crisis
