  Corona menu Symptoms  
1. What are the symptoms of Covid-19?
The most common symptoms of Covid-19 are fever, fatigue, and dry cough. Some patients may experience soreness and muscle pain, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, or diarrhoea. These symptoms are generally mild and start gradually. In the most severe cases, the infection may cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.


Recently, anosmia/hyposmia (loss/diminution of smell), and in some cases ageusia (loss of taste) have been reported as symptoms related to the Covid-19 infection. Data from South Korea, China and Italy show that in some cases patients with confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection developed anosmia/hyposmia in the absence of other symptoms.
2. How dangerous is the new virus?

Some people get infected but do not develop any symptoms. Symptoms are usually mild, especially in children and young adults, and have a gradual onset. About 1 in 5 people with COVID-19 become seriously ill and develop breathing difficulties, requiring hospitalization. 

3. How long is the incubation period?

The incubation period is the time between infection and the onset of clinical symptoms of disease. It is currently estimated to range between 2 and 11 days, up to a maximum of 14 days.

4. Who are the people most at risk of developing a severe form of the disease?

People at higher risk for severe COVID-19 are senior citizens, people with underlying conditions such as hypertension, heart disease or diabetes and individuals with a weakened immune system (due to congenital or acquired disease or to immunosuppressive treatment, transplant recipients).
