Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Diarrhea can be a symptom of COVID19

But mostly it is seen in combination with fever or other symptoms of COVID19

If your diarrhea is persisting for about a week then you must have an evaluation

Even if it is not COVID19 still you will need a stool test and antibiotic to treat it

Please do let me know if you have any other question
