Early Symptoms Of COVID-19
Initial reports stated that COVID-19 symptoms usually take two to 10 days to appear after contracting the virus. However, some people may start to feel the disease’s effects after 24 days.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said that the main and earliest signs of the coronavirus are:
A dry cough
In some cases, patients report “aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea,” the organization noted.
“These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually,” WHO said. “Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell.”
What To Do If You Have COVID-19 Symptoms
The government encourages people to self-isolate for seven days if they have a fever and a cough. If you live with others, keep a 2-meter distance from other people at home and sleep alone to reduce the risk of transmission.
Those who have difficulty in breathing should get medical attention. However, do not visit the clinic immediately.
Call your healthcare provider first because you may put other patients and stuff at the clinic at risk.
