ABSTRACT
COVID-19 was recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a pandemic disease since most of the countries reported significant numbers of deaths and infected people starting with December 2019 (WHO, 2020). The diversity of COVID-19 manifestations can be attributed to the sites where the SARS-Cov-2 receptors Angiotensin-converting Enzymes 2 (ACE2) were found, which include, but were not limited to, lung, kidney, salivary glands and gastrointestinal tract [1,12-14]. Dealing with COVID-19 had shown that many oral manifestations could be in direct relation to the infection itself. [...]another study [15] reported that at least one oral manifestation concerning the oral cavity and salivary gland was found on 67.2% of the 58 observed patients, in whom a dry mouth had the highest prevalence and gingival bleeding - the lowest. A P-value < 0.05 was considered significant. 3.RESULTS The link was distributed to a total of 515 patients tested positive with COVID-19, 512 of them having responded to the questionnaire (a response rate of 99%).
