Common Symptoms of Coronavirus

The most common symptoms of Coronavirus infection are cough, fever and fatigue. Basically the same symptoms you get when you have a cold or flu. 

These symptoms usually appear 4-6 days after an exposure, but can take as long as 14 days to appear. 

Almost 30% of people with symptoms from coronavirus infection experience a loss of smell or taste and many people have headache, congestion and muscle aches as well.
