Since the coronavirus began to hit the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been warning Americans that the three main symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
Now, the CDC has updated its list of symptoms to include six more signs to look out for.
In this way, the whole list of COVID-19 symptoms ―they may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus―, are:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Loss of taste or smell
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
As COVID-19 has continued to afflict hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S., medical and public health experts have learned about how this novel virus presents itself.
