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 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 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.


persistent cough, shortness of breath, or fever equal to or greater than 38ºC, or signs of fever e.g. shivering, flushed skin, excessive sweating
