People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
COVID-19 患者報告的症狀範圍很廣——從輕微症狀到嚴重疾病。 症狀可能在接觸病毒後 2-14 天出現。 任何人都可能有輕微到嚴重的症狀。 有這些症狀的人可能患有 COVID-19：
此列表不包括所有可能的症狀。 隨著我們對 COVID-19 的了解更多，CDC 將繼續更新此列表。 老年人和患有心髒病或肺病或糖尿病等嚴重基礎疾病的人似乎更有可能因 COVID-19 疾病而出現更嚴重的並發症。
(Editor’s note: Some symptoms of covid 19 are similar to symptoms of common cold. So if you have a couple of symptoms, it does not necessarily mean that you get covid 19. However, you better take care of it as if it is covid 19 particularly if you are older, have underlying health conditions or physically weak. There are many things you can do to help yourself. This includes self-isolation. You should weigh your risk if you go to hospital to check out because hospitals are hot spots for covid 19 – a dangerous place.)
（covid 19 的某些症狀類似於普通感冒的症狀。因此，如果您有幾個症狀，並不一定意味著您感染了 covid 19。但是，您最好像對待 covid 19 一樣對待它，特別是如果您 年齡較大、有潛在健康問題或身體虛弱。您可以做很多事情來幫助自己。這包括自我隔離。 如果你去醫院檢查，你應該權衡你的風險，因為醫院是 COVID 19 的熱點——一個危險的地方。）
