Therefore, the symptoms of this disease are very similar to common cold (cold cough) and influenza.

Based on data that has been collected from patients who have contracted Covid-19 disease, the most important symptoms appear are fever and dry cough, and in advanced cases appear shortness of breath. In addition, the most important of these diseases is a history of traveling or contact with people who have traveled to countries or regions in the country who have contracted this disease, as well as direct contact with people who are positive with this disease.

If you meet the above criteria regarding covid-19, call the RI Ministry's hotline on number 119 ext 9 or visit the covid-19 referral hospital in your area. You can also quarantine yourself for 14 days to reduce the risk of contracting or infecting others. In addition, the following are steps to prevent this disease:
