Coronavirus symptoms to look out for
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. Symptoms of the virus include fever, cough and difficulty breathing or shortness of breath. The illness can also cause lung lesions and pneumonia. However, the milder cases are often hard to detect as they exhibit symptoms of the flu or common cold.
Other symptoms of the Coronavirus include gastrointestinal problems or diarrhoea. Acute cases of the virus can cause the severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and may even result in death. According to current estimates, the symptoms may appear from two to fourteen days after exposure to the virus.
Older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions are more vulnerable to contracting the Coronavirus. The disease can be transmitted from one person to another as a result of close contact with the infected person.
Prevention is always better than cure. Keep yourself and your family safe by taking preventative measures to avoid the virus.
