What are the Symptoms of COVID-19?
SYMPTOMS of Corellavirus
Symptoms may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to COVID-19. This is the longest known incubation period for this disease.
Fever is a key symptom, experts say. Don't fixate on a number, but know it's really not a fever until your temperature reaches to at least 100 degrees.
Coughing is another key symptom, but it's not just any cough, said Schaffner. It should be a dry cough that you feel in your chest.
Difficulty in Breathing
Shortness of breath can be a third and very serious manifestation of Covid-19 and it can occur on its own, without a cough.
IF YOU START HAVING SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19
Persistent cough, shortness of breath or fever equal to or greater than 38ºC or signs of fever e.g. shivering, flushed skin and excessive sweating.
Immediately isolate yourself from others in your house.
Contact your public health authority as soon.
How do we prevent Covid-19?
PREVENTION OF CORONAVIRUS
The best way to prevent the spread of infections is to:
Wash your hands
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, especially with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Cover your mouth
Cover your mouth and nose with your arm or tissues to reduce the spread of germs.
Immediately dispose of any tissues you have used into the garbage as soon as possible and wash your hands, afterwards.
Clean and Disinfect
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, such as toys, electronic devices and doorknobs.
Stay home, if you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others.
