COVID-19: Stop the Spread - Symptoms and Treatment
Downloaded from Last modied on October 22, 2020.
Symptoms of COVID-19, which is the disease caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus, range
from mild — like the u and other common respiratory infections — to severe.
The most common symptoms of
COVID-19 include:
fever (feeling hot to the touch, a temperature of
37.8 degrees Celsius or higher)
cough that's new or worsening (continuous,
more than usual)
barking cough, making a whistling noise when
breathing (croup)
shortness of breath (out of breath, unable to
breathe deeply)
sore throat
difculty swallowing
runny, stuffy or congested nose (not related to
seasonal allergies or other known causes or
lost sense of taste or smell
pink eye (conjunctivitis)
headache that’s unusual or long lasting
digestive issues (nausea/vomiting, diarrhea,
stomach pain)
muscle aches
extreme tiredness that is unusual (fatigue, lack
of energy)
falling down often
Call 911 if you are experiencing any
of the following symptoms:
severe difculty breathing (struggling for each
breath, can only speak in single words)
severe chest pain (constant tightness or
crushing sensation)
feeling confused or unsure of where you are
losing consciousness
Complications from COVID-19 can include
serious conditions, like pneumonia or kidney
failure and, in some cases, death.
There is no specic treatment for COVID-19,
and there is no vaccine that protects against
the coronavirus that causes it. The majority
of COVID-19 cases are mild and most
people who get it will recover on their own.
Typical treatment for common coronaviruses
drinking plenty of uids
getting as much rest and sleep as possible
using a humidier or taking a hot shower to help
with a sore throat or cough
If you start to feel symptoms of COVID-19, you should:
go to a COVID-19 assessment centre to get tested
stay home and self-isolate unless you are going to the assessment centre
only call 911 if it is an emergency
Some groups are at higher risk of getting COVID-19. You may be in an at-risk group if you are 70 years old or older, are getting treatment that
compromises (weakens) your immune system (for example, chemotherapy, medication for transplants, corticosteroids, TNF inhibitors), have
a condition that compromises (weakens) your immune system (for example, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, other autoimmune disorder), have a
chronic (long-lasting) health condition (for example, diabetes, emphysema, asthma, heart condition), regularly go to a hospital or health care
setting for a treatment (for example, dialysis, surgery, cancer treatment).
