With the declaration of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Australians implemented major restrictions to reduce the respiratory droplet and aerosol contact1 transmission of the novel severe-acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The pandemic prompted public health messaging advising Australians to minimise physical contact, maintain 1.5 metres distance from others, wear a face mask2 and wash and sanitise hands regularly,3 particularly after contact with others. As a predominantly respiratory infection, COVID-19 binds with alveolar and small intestinal epithelial angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors, drawing attention to the gut and respiratory microbiome.4
