Abstract

There are numerous case reports and a handful of single center studies reporting on COVID‐19 in kidney transplant recipients. Most reports arise from the epicenters of where the SARS‐CoV‐2 virus was first detected such as New York City and Europe3. We in UNOS Region 1 experienced COVID‐19 weeks to a month later and questioned whether our experience was different. The programs within UNOS Region 1 have had a long history of sharing information in an attempt to mitigate the effect of viruses on our patients.
