CDC Expands Its Coronavirus Symptoms List
As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention learn more about the Coronavirus, the organization has added more symptoms for us to watch out for.
For the past few months, the world has been warned that if any of us displayed symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath, we should seek medical attention because we may be sick.
The CDC has just added six more symptoms to its list of possible indicators a person may have the virus. Those symptoms are: "chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and new loss of taste or smell."
According to the CDC, it could take between two and 14 days for the symptoms to appear after a person has been exposed to the virus. If you or someone under your roof is experiencing any of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention if you are in an emergency situation and suffering from any of the following, "Trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, or bluish lips or face."
The CDC also reminds, "Call 911 if you have a medical emergency: Notify the operator that you have, or think you might have, COVID-19. If possible, put on a cloth face covering before medical help arrives."
