The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has added six new symptoms to its existing list of symptoms for COVID-19.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and CDC first urged the public to be on the lookout for fever, dry cough and breathing difficulties. However, in its latest updates, the CDC now shows that headache, a sore throat, muscle pain, chills, repeated shaking with chills and loss of taste or smell are possible symptoms to coronavirus.

According to the CDC website, the symptoms usually appear within two to 14 days after exposure to the virus, adding that “emergency warning signs” for COVID-19 mainly include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion or inability to arouse and bluish lips or face.

The global death toll from coronavirus has passed 209,244. There are more than 3,029,746 known cases of infection but more than 900,334 people have recovered, according to worldometer’s latest tally.

With limited number of test kits in many countries, the CDC recommends that one does a self assesesment to see if they have the said symptoms prior to seeking medical attention.
