COVID-19 is a respiratory condition caused by a coronavirus. People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Some people are infected but don’t notice any symptoms. Most people with mild symptoms get better on their own. But about 1 in 6 will have severe problems, such as trouble breathing. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. The odds of more serious symptoms are higher if you’re older or have another health condition like diabetes or heart disease.
These are some common symptoms of COVID-19:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
Loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
