COVID-19 is not like regular viruses humans had encountered before so, it will take a while to completely understand its nature. The infected ones have wide range of symptoms ranging from mild fever to severe illness. COVID-19 symptoms usually appear within 2-14 days of encounter with the virus. We have devised a checklist of Coronavirus symptoms though it doesn't include all possible symptoms but you check the possibility of encountering this virus with the help of this checklist.

Fever or Chills

In fever the body temperature rises from normal 98.4°F to 100.4°F or above causing stress and weakness in the body. Fever is sometimes accompanied by chills- feeling of coldness or shivering.


Cough is the reaction of body to clear the itch in throat. Cough is a big alarm in COVID-19 symptoms and usually dry cough (one with no mucus) is more fatal than chesty cough.


The body stress and depression during fever or sometimes otherwise produce the condition of headache. In COVID-19 symptoms, headache is the most common one.


The condition of loose or watery stools. Diarrhea is not a big symptom because you could have it with improper diet as well. But still if you the diarrhea lasts longer than 2 days, it is a matter of concern.


It's the feeling of tiredness in the body, where you feel lack of energy to do work. It is mainly caused irregular sleeping habit but if you experience fatigue on regular intervals. It may be caused by COVID-19.

Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Dry cough puts too much strain on the chest causing dyspnea during which intense tightening in the chest causes air hunger, difficulty breathing, breathlessness or a feeling of suffocation.

New loss of taste or smell

It is still unclear why COVID-19 causes lost of smell or taste but some theories suggest that COVID-19, binds to a protein called ACE2 which is responsible of these functions.

Sore Throat

During high fever or cold/flu conditions can cause pain, scratchiness or irritation of the throat that often worsens when you swallow.

Nausea or Vomiting

Nausea is an uneasiness of the stomach that often accompanies the urge to vomit, but doesn't always lead to vomiting.
