Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has adversely affected the care of patients with renal diseases, who are at a high risk of contracting COVID-19, in several ways. We searched the search engines such as PubMed, Embase and Google Scholar for articles published from March 2020 to October 2020. Data pertaining to the impact of COVID-19 on renal patients and the referral system were extracted from the various published narrative reviews and the guidelines of the professional organisations. In this review, we have tried to focus on all these aspects, including various challenges faced in delivering routine hospital services and of providing renal replacement therapy. We believe that this unprecedented and globally alarming situation has, by now, taught us enough, so that we can be more careful in executing optimal care of renal patients, should similar situation arise in future.
