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
