SYMPTOMS OF COVID19
Symptoms of the coronavirus can include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, and sore throat. Symptoms generally appear two to 14 days after exposure.

Health officials said most patients experience mild symptoms and can recover at home.
However, some patients, particularly those with underlying medical conditions, may experience more severe respiratory disease.
The coronavirus appears to spread in ways similar to the flu and the common cold, which includes through the air coughing and sneezing, close personal contact such as touching and shaking hands and touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching the mouth, nose or eyes.
