5 Symptoms of Coronavirus
- Runny Nose:
“Most patients will get symptoms like fever, runny nose, sore throat, cough,” tells Elie Saade, MD, UH Director for Infection Control. “In a minority of patients, that will progress to cause severe pneumonia and that can lead to death.”
- Sore Throat: although they may feel similar to those suffering from their symptoms, the novel coronavirus is not the same as the seasonal flu, experts stressed Wednesday.
- Fever: Anyone who has a fever and respiratory symptoms should not fly if at all possible. Even if a person has symptoms that feel like just a cold, he or she should wear a mask on an airplane. this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- Cough: A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- Difficulty Breathing: Look for a medical attention, but phone first: Look for medical care immediately if your illness is worsening (for example, if you have difficulty breathing). Call your doctor before going in: Before going to the doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them your symptoms. They will tell you what to do.
