The CDC reports that anyone with the following symptoms may have COVID-19:

 

  • Fever or chills

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose

“This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19,” the website states.

The US federal department also warned: “Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.”

This comes as almost 10million people have been infected by the disease worldwide with nearly 500,000 deaths.
