As we recover from our July 4th weekend with family and friends, we at LabFinder decided it was time to remind everyone how important it is to remain safe and vigilant regarding your health. Burnt out from COVID-19 is a very real thing which has negatively impacted not only mental health of individuals but families that have suffered a real loss from the virus, as well as business owners as well. 

Regardless of the impact the virus has caused, we thought it was worth considering to inform our readers on the latest information issued by our health officials regarding the latest list of symptoms of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. According to the CDC, anyone can develop mild to severe symptoms. As well as, older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease, or diabetes seem to be at greater risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.

The latest cdc published that symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC claims it will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19. The CDC also advises on seeking medical attention when emergency warning signs occur for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face

*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.

Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.
