As the COVID-19 virus evolves, so have the symptoms. Many people experience symptoms differently. The most common ones we are seeing have been -

Allergy symptoms: congested, runny nose, sneezing, eyes burning

Nose burning, feeling like it is swollen

Body aches – maybe even 1 certain spot on the body hurts only



Diarrhea, Vomiting, Nausea (some only symptom is Diarrhea)


Shortness of breath


No taste or smell

Low blood oxygen level – many people will feel normal, just a little dizzy. This can drop fast, and if so, you need to seek medical attention


Fever/headache maybe last 24-36 hours and then they are fine

Vomiting and diarrhea
