Coronavirus symptoms you should know


The coronavirus pandemic is rapidly becoming a serious emergency. With more than 70,000 cases of infection and 3000 lives lost so far, the coronavirus remains one of the deadliest infections that is spreading rapidly. Until yesterday, two new cases have been registered in India, one reported in Delhi and the second in Telangana. The United States also recorded its first death related to Coronavirus on Sunday (March 1).

While it is extremely important to protect against mortal risk, it is absolutely possible to fall prey to rumors. What makes coronavirus infection really dangerous is that the symptoms can appear in the form of a minor cold and manifest itself in something as serious as respiratory disorders. We give you a brief explanation of the same to protect yourself from infection.

What are the symptoms?

Coronavirus infection affects different people differently. According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 is transmitted from an infected person to another through coughing, sneezing or direct contact and even through direct infectious droplets, which spread when people cough or exhale.

Infections reported so far have been classified as mild to severe. In some cases, symptoms may take up to 2-14 days to fully develop after the risk of exposure. However, by far, these have been the most commonly recognized symptoms in patients:

-Tos and cold

-Fever (lasts a minimum of 2-3 days)

– Short of breath

Congested nose, itchy throat.


-Treatment of the upper respiratory tract

The risk of transmission is quite high, it is often transmitted when in contact with an infected person or when exposed to fecal waste, according to the guidelines published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In more severe cases, the infection can also cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), kidney failure and even death, in rare cases. According to the CDC, the symptoms of coronavirus infection are very similar to those of a seasonal flu infection. Recent reports also indicate that people infected with COVID-19 may suffer an infection even before they begin to show significant symptoms.

The infection appears to be more severe in the elderly and in those with significant existing medical conditions, such as diabetes and heart conditions.

As of now, there are no clear scientific reports indicating that the risk of coronavirus infection is high for pregnant women and children. They may experience changes related to immunity or certain related physiological changes that make them more prone to viral infections.

People are urged to hurry for help or speak with health professionals immediately when they begin to show early symptoms of a possible Coronavirus infection. Early detection, quarantine and treatment, as well as the practice of the necessary preventive measures are the key to an easy recovery.
