Coronavirus Symptom Checker: Signs You Might Be Infected
Many of us are worried if the cough we've had for a couple of weeks is related to Coronavirus; or is it just allergies? Is it just a cold? How do we know?
The Center for Disease Control says these are the symptoms we should be watching out for.
These symptoms typically occur between 2-14 days of exposure:
- Shortness of breath
If you develop emergency signs of the virus, you are asked to get medical attention immediately. These more serious signs include:
- Difficulty Breathing; Shortness of breath
- Pressure in your chest or persistent pain in the chest area
- New confusion; or the inability to awaken from sleep
- Bluish lips or face
