Abstract

We thank the authors Maria Mendoza et al. (1) for their comments related to our publication on the clinical characteristics and outcomes of COVID-19 in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients (2). Our study included a cohort of 47 consecutive SOT recipients with COVID-19. As noted in our study the 12 patients with mild to moderate COVID-19 that were treated as outpatients were excluded from the analysis to avoid potential selection bias. The study therefore compares 35 hospitalized SOT and 100 hospitalized non-transplant patients with COVID-19.
