We are learning more about coronavirus symptoms every day. Here are 10 of the most common symptoms and what to do to keep you and your family safe.

Fever, cough and shortness of breath are found in the vast majority of all Covid-19 cases. But there are additional signals of the virus, some that are very much like cold or flu, and some that are more unusual.Any or all symptoms can appear anywhere from two to 14 days after exposure to the virus, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Here are 10 signs that you or a loved one may have Covid-19 -- and what to do to protect yourself and your family.1. Shortness of breathRead MoreWhat is coronavirus and Covid-19? An explainerShortness of breath is not usually an early symptom of Covid-19, but it is the most serious. It can occur on its own, without a cough. If your chest becomes tight or you begin to feel as if you cannot breathe deeply enough to fill your lungs with air, that's a sign to act quickly, experts say. "If there's any shortness of breath immediately call your health care provider, a local urgent care or the emergency department," said American Medical Association president Dr. Patrice Harris."If the shortness of breath is severe enough, you should call 911," Harris added.The CDC lists other emergency warning signs for Covid-19 as a"persistent pain or pressure in the chest," and"bluish lips or face," which can indicate a lack of oxygen.Get medical attention immediately, the CDC says.2. FeverFever is a key sign of Covid-19. Because some people can have a core body temperature lower or higher than the typical 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Celsius), experts say not to fixate on a number.CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who is battling the virus from his home in New York, is one of those people. Grocery rules for your coronavirus lockdown: Buy beans, freeze milk, don't hoard, and more"I run a little cool. My normal temperature is 97.6, not 98.6. So, even when I'm at 99 that would not be a big deal for most people. But, for me, I'm already warm," Cuomo told CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta in a CNN Town Hall.Most children and adults, however, will not be considered feverish until their temperature reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.7 degrees Celsius)."There are many misconceptions about fever," said Dr. John Williams, chief of the division of pediatric infectious diseases at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh."We all actually go up and down quite a bit during the day as much as half of a degree or a degree," Williams said, adding that for most people"99.0 degrees or 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit is not a fever." Don't rely on a temperature taken in the morning, said infectious disease expert Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventative medicine and infectious disease at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville. Instead, take your temperature in the late afternoon and early evening.Quarantine: How to prepare for possible coronavirus infection"Our temperature is not the same during the day. If you take it at eight o'clock in the morning, it may be normal," Schaffner explained."One of the most common presentations of fever is that your temperature goes up in the late afternoon and early evening. It's a common way that viruses produce fever."3. Dry CoughCoughing is another common symptom, but it's not just any cough."It's not a tickle in your throat. You're not just clearing your throat. It's not just irritated," Schaffner explained.The cough is bothersome, a dry cough that you feel deep in your chest.How 'regular school' parents can homeschool their kids"It's coming from your breastbone or sternum, and you can tell that your bronchial tubes are inflamed or irritated," Schaffner added.A report put out by the World Health Organization in February found over 33% of 55,924 people with laboratory confirmed cases of Covid-19 had coughed up sputum, a thick mucus sometimes called phlegm, from their lungs. 4. Chills and body aches"The beast comes out at night," said Cuomo, referencing the chills, body aches and high fever that visited him on April 1. 'It was like somebody was beating me like a pinata. And I was shivering so much that ... I chipped my tooth. They call them the rigors," he said from his basement, where he is quarantined from the rest of his family."I was hallucinating. My dad was talking to me. I was seeing people from college, people I haven't seen in forever, it was freaky," Cuomo said. Why soap, sanitizer and warm water work against Covid-19 and other virusesNot everyone will have such a severe reaction, experts say. Some may have no chills or body aches at all. Others may experience milder flu-like chills, fatigue and achy joints and muscles, which can make it difficult to know if it's flu or coronavirus that's to blame.One possible sign that you might have Covid-19 is if your symptoms don't improve after a week or so but actually worsen.5. Sudden confusionSpeaking of worsening signs, the CDC says a sudden confusion or an inability to wake up and be alert may be a serious sign that emergency care may be needed. If you or a loved one has those symptoms, especially with other critical signs like bluish lips, trouble breathing or chest pain, the CDC says to seek help immediately.Are food deliveries and groceries safe during coronavirus pandemic? Yes, experts say6. Digestive issuesAt first science didn't think diarrhea or other typical gastric issues that often come with the flu applied to the noval coronavirus, also known as SARS-CoV-2. As more research on survivors becomes available, that opinion has changed. "In a study out of China where they looked at some of the earliest patients, some 200 patients, they found that digestive or stomach GI (gastrointestinal) symptoms were actually there in about half the patients," Gupta said on CNN's New Day news program.Overall,"I think we're getting a little bit more insight into the types of symptoms that patients might have," Gupta said.The study described a unique subset of milder cases in which the initial symptoms were digestive issues such as diarrhea, often without fever. Those patients experienced delays in testing and diagnosis than patients with respiratory issues, and they took longer to clear the virus from their systems.7. Pink eyeResearch from China, South Korea and other parts of the world indicate that about 1% to 3% of people with Covid-19 also had conjunctivitis, commonly known as pink eye. Do you wear contact lenses? You should switch to glasses to stop spreading the virus Conjunctivitis, a highly contagious condition when caused by a virus, is an inflammation of the thin, transparent layer of tissue, called conjunctiva, that covers the white part of the eye and the inside of the eyelid.But SARS-CoV-2 is just one of many viruses that can cause conjunctivitis, so it came as no real surprise to scientists that this newly discovered virus would do the same.Still, a pink or red eye could be one more sign that you should call your doctor if you also have other telltale symptoms of Covid-19, such as fever, cough or shortness of breath.8. Loss of smell and tasteIn mild to moderate cases of coronavirus, a loss of smell and taste is emerging as one of the most unusual early signs of Covid-19.Doctors say loss of sense of smell might be Covid-19 symptom"What's called anosmia, which basically means loss of smell, seems to be a symptom that a number of patients developed," CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta told CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota on New Day."It may be linked to loss of taste, linked to loss of appetite, we're not sure -- but it's clearly something to look out for," Gupta said."Sometimes these early symptoms aren't the classic ones.""Anosmia, in particular, has been seen in patients ultimately testing positive for the coronavirus with no other symptoms," according to the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.A recent analysis of milder cases in South Korea found the major presenting symptom in 30% of patients was a loss of smell. In Germany, more than two in three confirmed cases had anosmia.It has long been known in medical literature that a sudden loss of smell may be associated with respiratory infections caused by other types of coronaviruses, so it wasn't a surprise that the novel coronavirus would have this effect, according to ENT UK (PDF), a professional organization representing ear, nose and throat surgeons in the United Kingdom.How do you manage fighting kids during a lockdown? We asked the expertsIs there anything you can do at home to test to see if you're suffering a loss of smell? The answer is yes, by using the"jellybean test" to tell if odors flow from the back of your mouth up through your nasal pharynx and into your nasal cavity. if you can pick out distinct flavors such as oranges and lemons, your sense of smell is functioning fine.9. FatigueFor some people, extreme fatigue can be an early sign of the novel coronavirus. The WHO report found nearly 40% of the nearly 6,000 people with laboratory confirmed cases experienced fatigue.Just a few days into his quarantine, Cuomo was already exhausted by the fevers and body aches the disease brings. "I'm so lethargic that I can stare outside, and, like, an hour-and-a-half goes by," Cuomo told Gupta on Anderson Cooper 360."I think I took a 10-minute nap, and it was three and a half hours." How to keep coronavirus fears from affecting your mental healthFatigue may continue long after the virus is gone. Anecdotal reports from people who have recovered from Covid-19 say exhaustion and lack of energy continue well past the standard recovery period of a few weeks.10. Headache, sore throat, congestionThe WHO report also found nearly 14% of the almost 6,000 cases of Covid-19 in China had symptoms of headache and sore throat, while almost 5% had nasal congestion. Certainly not the most common signs of the disease, but obviously similar to colds and flu. In fact, many symptoms of Covid-19 can resemble the flu, including headaches and the previously mentioned digestive issues, body aches and fatigue. Still other symptoms can resemble a cold or allergies, such as a sore throat and congestion.Most likely, experts say, you simply have a cold or the flu -- after all, they can cause fever and cough too. So what should you do?"At this moment, the current guidance -- and this may change -- is that if you have symptoms that are similar to the cold and the flu and these are mild symptoms to moderate symptoms, stay at home and try to manage them" with rest, hydration and the use of fever-reducing medications, said the AMA's Harris.Get CNN Health's weekly newsletter Sign up here to get The Results Are In with Dr. Sanjay Gupta every Tuesday from the CNN Health team.

Except loss of taste. That happens when I choose what clothes I'll be wearing. ALL democrats, please go hide in your homes. You're in great danger! Corona Virus is going to kill you. We Republicans will tell you when it's safe to come back. ✌

Forgot hangnail, chipped tooth, and sunburn. 11. You listen to the MSM too much. What if I’ve got asthma? 🤔 Fake News again as usually. How is pink eye a symptom of covid? Just the sniffles, get over it... Just global warming, get over it... Just violent inequality, get over it... Just endless war for profit, get over it... Just speices ending Corporate Capitalist White Supremacy, get over it...

That’s literally every symptom of every sickness ever lmao Lol... so four months later you still have to create a list for your readers? WOW they must be living under a rock if they don’t know the symptoms by now... then again I would not be surprised if they don’t. Pretty obvious they don’t pay close attention to much.

But I almost lost my mind cause I had heart burn :/ it’s stressful I hv digestive issues all the year round, I hv fatigues also, this is because I am overweight.

MorganStanley POTUS He told me it was going to be Fake News All those, plus a maga hat. The only Virus you need to worry about is the Fake News. The MSM ⤵️

How to differentiate between COVID-19 symptoms, and those that accompany realization that Trump is actually President and not just a bad dream that will magically go away? Sounds like an amazing hangover. Already? Ok.. Carry on then. Sounds like Biden. I had all the symptoms few days ago minus the cough n lack of taste/smell 🤔

always negative news about covid The good news is if you participated in a protest then the 10 signs above are the cold/flu. It's a sham! Refuse to comply! Sounds like most of the common illnesses in the world. Fearmongers *you live in florida, Arkansas or texas Lepiej nie Oy Vey! I have a weird mole... I'm afraid I have covid.

Three and half months and we're still at 'here are the symptoms.' Wear a fucking mask people! I don’t have any of those. I literally just climbed a mountain. Oh. Isn't that just the flu then!!! Bulls**t I had all those. Sypmtoms except the pink eye. Went for a run to burn it off and drank hot lemon m. Ginger. Gone in 2days 👌

GfY Cnn.. ya' lost us in wpqt! Breath, life, hearing birds, seeing stars at night, a/c, walmart! Damn and all this time I thought those were just the symptoms of watching your bullshit Network for three minutes one day last week CNN you forgot to mention going to church and singing. Also going to the beach. It's funny you can have 1000's of protesters crowding and breathing on each other yet that is not even on the list. I thought CNN believed in science. Protesting good. Church bad. Try telling God that

Stop your lies! This is barely different from malaria, How do I differentiate the symptoms listed from Monday? This sucks because what if you have a different sickness with the same symptoms.. Propaganda 101 people. Can we get “10 signs you’re contributing to civilizations downfall w/ economic policy, conspiracy theories & science denial”

Anyone notice how Joe Biden has been suffering from a lot of sudden confusion over the last few months? I have like 4 of these, and I don’t have COVID19 I have all this sign And those are the qualifications you need to work for CNN Watching CNN is also a sign you might have COVID Defund CNN I take precautions, thanks God I am safe

Repube snowflakes will find a way to be triggered by this And if you don’t have you will be fine.. You have COVID19 or you realize your President is Trump By Fake news killed many Americans Bruh most of that's just a normal Tuesday. Ok, so about 3/4 the symptoms I feel when my anxiety acts up and I try to not have a panic attack. Covid is a joke . Where were all these precautions when all the other flu like pandemics happend

pink eye? COVID gets shit particles in your eyes? Relax. Most of you probably just have CancAIDS. Even when confused about my finances? Normal here in Kenya. Pinkeye? Ha wow But I get all of those symptoms when I see CNN headlines? I guess im near death Former KGB defector, previously communist propaganda figure, explains the global threat of failed communist ideology Marx, Lennon (recorded in 1984)

The list of symptoms continues to grow. Diarrhea is too Pink eye? Really? The pink eye symptom is new to me. Interesting. Or, the following: A cold Allergies A stomach bug A pinched nerve Food poisoning Pink eye Sinusitis A job A headache Too much sun Vitamin deficiency An active lifestyle Are human Crazy how basically, if you have ANYTHING wrong...you may have covid. Fear porn.

Here is 1 sign that you’re a mindless lemmings that can’t think for yourself. . You watch CNN and believe the weird BS they spew I got all of this on election night in 2016. How is that possible? Addition: You went to Trump’s Tulsa “rally” You went to Trump’s 3rd of July hate speech alfamia Sudden confusion? How could they tell with Cain?

Sounds like the common flu to everybody reading this list... Avoid large crowds If you are sick StayHome QuedateEnCasa if you are scared Keep praying for healing 🙏🇵🇦 And if you are not elderly or have pre-conditions you will be fine. cnn continues to stoke panic in America. You are a disgrace to journalism.

Does this go for one person or does this count also when one shares it with others. When my son has digestive issues, my wife gets confused, and I lose smell and taste and get dry coughs. That mostly covers every darn disease in the medical books!🙄 You forgot MSM God Bless You take care Wear a Mask when you go out God is in control

Like the flu When I tested positive, mine were: Here are 10 signs you may have Covid-19: ▪︎ Fever ▪︎ Dry cough ▪︎ Chills & body aches ▪︎ Digestive issues ▪︎ Loss of smell & taste ▪︎ Fatigue ▪︎ Headache, congestion This looks like a track list Loss of smell and taste hit a whole lot of Nigerians in the past 3 weeks.

CNN:Here are several conditions absolutely make u president of America. BLACK LGBT SPEAK SPANISH MUSLIM WOMAN WELCOME IMMIGRANTS If u meet all these conditions,then congratulations!All Democrats are going to vote for u. and one more sign watching cnn That's an average Tuesday for me. So cold and flu symptoms? But that wouldn’t be such a dramatic headline, would it?

All the hypochondriacs right now... Gotta cover everything to keep pushing the bullshit huh.. good job tools MDRNelles pink eye! I will just say this, I think Corona has been here a lot longer than the beginning of this year. Scientists should be blamed! They get paid fortunes, grants, etc etc and they had 150 days and NOTHING!!!

All together or anyone of them ? Who cares....just get some Hydroxychloroquine prescribed Smoking a big fatty can give you at least half of those symptoms. 🌿🚬 And now the government has your DNA legally with all the testing. I wonder how many crimes will be solved Those also sound like the 10 signs you’re over 70!

KateBolduan S.V.P. show the clip of Trudeau re: Canada Crushing COVID-19 It’s like you just copied and pasted any “side effects may include” list from any shit prescription commercial? BTW...according to 5 on your list...”Sudden Confusion”, the entire world is infected! JapaneseLegend!SAMURAI!
