According to WHO and CDC, Coronavirus/Covid 19 shares many symptoms with the common cold and seasonal flu. According to the CDC, it now appears that Coronavirus/Covid 19 sufferers often have some combination of symptoms that do not usually appear with cold or flue: Extreme Tiredness, Shortness of Breath Muscle Pain and New loss of smell and/or taste.
It is important to remember that:
- Symptoms may show up between 2 and 14 days after infection, and
- People who are carrying Coronavirus/Covid 19 may pass it to others before they know they are infected.
However, it is still important to remember that the vast majority of people who develop Covid 19 will experience mild cases and recover completely without going to the hospital or other medical facility.
