The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, trouble breathing, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 and feel you need to be seen, please call your primary care provider. If you are showing severe symptoms of COVID-19 and need to come to the ER, please call them on your way
