WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
Symptoms of coronavirus can include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, and sore throat. Symptoms generally appear two to 14 days after exposure.
Other symptoms include chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle aches, headaches, and new taste and / or smell loss.
Health officials said that most patients have mild symptoms and can recover at home.
However, some patients, particularly those with underlying medical conditions, may experience more severe respiratory problems.
The corona virus appears to spread in a similar way to the flu and the common cold. This includes coughing and sneezing through the air, close personal contact such as touching and shaking hands and touching an object or surface with the virus, and then touching the mouth, nose, or eyes.
Anyone who experiences symptoms is asked to call their doctor and not just to appear in person.
