What are some symptoms of COVID-19?
People with COVID-19 have reported a wide range of symptoms, ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Symptoms may include: fever or chills; cough; shortness of breath; fatigue; muscle or body aches; headache; new loss of taste or smell; sore throat; congestion or runny nose; nausea or vomiting; diarrhea.
Can you get the COVID-19 from someone who has no symptoms?
Both flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to others by people before they begin showing symptoms; by people with very mild symptoms; and by people who never experience symptoms (asymptomatic people).
What are some uncommon symptoms of COVID-19?
Research has shown that younger people with less severe COVID-19 symptoms may develop painful, itchy sores or bumps on their hands and feet. Another weird symptom of the skin is “COVID-19 toes.” Some people have experienced red and purple colored toes that swell and burn.
How long do you stay contagious after testing positive for COVID-19?
If someone is asymptomatic or their symptoms go away, it’s possible to remain contagious for at least 10 days after testing positive for COVID-19. People who are hospitalized with severe disease and people with weakened immune systems can be contagious for 20 days or longer.
How many COVID- 19 cases do not develop symptoms?
We believe that the number of asymptomatic infections ranges from 15 to 40 percent of total infections. COVID-19 causes a wide range of symptoms. Some have mild symptoms like a sore throat or a runny nose that can be confused for allergies or a cold.
How does COVID-19 mainly spread?
Spread of COVID-19 occurs via airborne particles and droplets. People who are infected with COVID can release particles and droplets of respiratory fluids that contain the SARS CoV-2 virus into the air when they exhale (e.g., quiet breathing, speaking, singing, exercise, coughing, sneezing).
Does COVID-19 cause gastrointestinal symptoms?
