What are the Symptoms of COVID-19

SYMPTOMS of Coronavirus

Symptoms may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to COVID-19. This is the longest known incubation period for this disease.

Fever

Fever is a key symptom, experts say. Don't fixate on a number, but know it's really not a fever until your temperature reaches at least 100 degrees

Cough

Coughing is another key symptom, but it's not just any cough, said Dr. Quamar. It should be a dry cough that you feel in your chest.

Difficulty Breathing

Shortness of breath can be a third -- and very serious -- manifestation of Covid-19, and it can occur on its own, without a cough.

HOW IT IS SPREAD

Coronaviruses are most commonly spread from an infected person through:

  • Respiratory droplets when you cough or sneeze
  • Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
  • Touching something with the virus on it, then touching your eyes, nose or mouth before washing your hands

These viruses are not known to spread through ventilation systems or through water.
