What are the symptoms?

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • Fever

Some patients may also have the following symptoms

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Body aches and pains
  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Sore throat

These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually, recent research suggest up to 80% of those infected recover from the virus without any special treatment, however older people and those with medical conditions like high blood pressure, heart problems and diabetes are more likely to develop serious.

People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
