Reply to Peng He, Xiaohui Wang, and Hao Li`s Letter to the Editor re: Yu Xiao, Kaiyu Qian, Yongwen Luo, et al. Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 Infection in Renal Failure Patients: A Potential Covert Source of Infection. Eur Urol. In press. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.eururo.2020.03.025 (European Urology)
We appreciate the letter from He et al on our recent paper . The authors provided strong clinical data in support of our primary findings. As He et al mentioned, chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients have a high rate of infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in hemodialysis (HD) centers. Therefore, we once again call on medical providers to pay special attention to SARS-CoV-2 infection of dialysis patients.
