For Covid-19 patients that require ICU care, the timing of enteral nutrition delivery is an important issue to improve mortality and reduce infections.[1]

Initiating early enteral nutrition within 24-36 hours of admission to the ICU or within 12 hours of intubation and placement on mechanical ventilation should be the goal to address critical care nutritional needs of Covid-19 patients.[3]
