5 major symptoms of coronavirus disease

In medicine there are quite a few types of all known diseases - acute respiratory infections, acute respiratory infections, GRIPP. With the advent of a new disease COVID-19, we need to be able to distinguish it from a cold or GRIPP. Already scientists have done a lot of research on coronavirus infection and found the differences that make it different from other viral diseases.

Studies that have already been conducted help determine the differences between coronavirus and colds. Coronavirus differs in its effects on the body and some symptoms. There are many similarities to a cold or GRIP as all such infections, but some may indicate that coronavirus penetrates the body.

The five main signs of ARVI-Cov-2 disease:

1. An increase in body temperature;
2. Dry cough (may be accompanied by a small amount of sputum);
3. dyspnea, feeling of tightness in chest, lack of air;
4. Loss of sense of smell;
5. Sharp deterioration of general well-being, lack of appetite, increased thirst and weakness.

Rare symptoms that accompany the disease:

1. Headache;
2. Hemorrhaging;
3. Diarrhea;
4. Nausea, vomiting;
5. Heartbeat.

Thanks to the research of experts on the clinical picture of various diseases, the main signs of COVID-19, colds and GRIPP were systematized.

The main differences between coronavirus and colds

In ARVI, we are characterized by sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, joint pain, while usually these symptoms occur without an increase in body temperature and are not accompanied by coughing. With GRIPP, which could cause any strain is always high fever, joint pain, severe weakness and dry cough. There are cases of severe course of GRIPP, which are accompanied by a runny nose, but such cases are not typical for coronavirus.

Most often the symptoms are similar in all colds, including COVID-19 (only initially in a milder form). But later, in coronavirus, the disease is accompanied by a sharp rise in temperature and a dry cough, and with a complication of the disease infection penetrates the lower respiratory tract and the disease becomes similar to SARS.

 The incubation period at COVID-19 is long enough, from 2 to 14 days without any symptoms of a cold, thus the person insignificant is the carrier of coronavirus that you will not tell about GRIPP - it within 1-2 days after infection literally leaves from feet of the person. In most people, the disease COVID-19 ends in recovery, it is about 80%, with no therapeutic manipulations are not required and only in 1 of 6 cases develops severe symptoms with the development of respiratory failure.
