They are described as a complication of coronavirus infection. A reduced proportion of patients have developed acute kidney injury, and it is a frequent cause of internship into the intensive care unit.

As you can see, there’s a wide variety of signs and symptoms. However, they are not very useful in the clinical practice because the virus has a high virulence, and spreads to other people before any symptom shows up.
