We read with great interest, the study by Abdulghani et al 1 regarding the level of perceived stress and the coping strategies adopted by medical students at King Saud University, Saudi Arabia during the COVID-19 pandemic. Being fourth year medical students, we can closely relate to the respondents in this study as online learning has become the norm. The authors successfully elucidated the academic and psychological struggles that medical students experience in the face of COVID-19. We appreciate the authors’ timely efforts in shedding some light on this matter; however, we would like to address a few issues.
