What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The symptoms of COVID-19 can vary widely and may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Common symptoms include:

  1. Fever or chills
  2. Cough
  3. Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  4. Fatigue
  5. Muscle or body aches
  6. Headache
  7. Sore throat
  8. Loss of taste or smell
  9. Congestion or runny nose
  10. Nausea or vomiting
  11. Diarrhea

It's important to note that some people infected with COVID-19 may experience mild symptoms or be asymptomatic, meaning they show no symptoms at all. 

However, even asymptomatic individuals can still spread the virus to others. In severe cases, COVID-19 can lead to pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), organ failure, and death, particularly among older adults and those with underlying health conditions. 

If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus, it's important to seek medical advice and get tested.
