The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC in the United States has discovered new symptoms of the highly infectious novel coronavirus. The top US medical watchdog is responsible to track diseases globally and directly executes advanced laboratory work.
On its website, the CDC mentions the new symptoms. “People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus,” CDC says on its website.
The new symptoms include, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache and new loss of taste or smell. These symptoms were not mentioned by the World Health Organization which mentioned the symptoms as fever, dry cough, tiredness, aches and pains, nasal congestion, sore throat and diarrhoea.
The difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath has been mentioned by both CDC and WHO. The novel coronavirus was first detected in a seafood market of Wuhan, China, last year in December. The disease has soon created a global pandemic. The scientists are finding challenges to study the virus as this is the first time a novel virus has infected humans.
