Can It Get Corona Even Though It Only Has A Few Symptoms?
I know that the general symptoms of someone exposed to the corona virus are fever, coughing and shortness of breath. My question is whether the sign if someone is exposed to the corona virus must experience all three symptoms or can only experience one of the symptoms?
Thank you Imam for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I try to help answer.
Corona virus or 2019 nover coronavirus or Covid-19 is a virus that attacks the respiratory system, first discovered in Wuhan, China. Corana virus infection can cause flu symptoms, such as coughing, runny nose, sore throat, watery eyes, and fever. In severe cases can cause fever, cough with phlegm and difficulty breathing.
In general, the symptoms of corona virus are:
3. Shortness of breath
These three symptoms must be present in a corona virus infection, plus if in the previous 1-2 weeks have traveled to an area affected by a corona outbreak, or made contact with a person infected with corona. If only one of the symptoms appears, it is not certain that the person has a corona virus infection or not.
There are several diseases that have similar symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath, such as bronchitis, pneumonia. Therefore, it should be checked by a doctor if you experience these symptoms, and later will be carried out additional examinations such as blood tests, or chest X-ray to make sure the symptoms that lead to corona infection or not.
Hope this helps, thank you.
