The COVID19 COE Symptoms Page is to provide basic information around symptoms and their association to COVID.   Here you can find background on the symptoms and how it relates to COVID. This should not be used to replace a doctor's care.  If you are suffering symptoms, please seek professional care. 

Coronavirus New Variants are Faster Spreading and more dangerous?

The new strains of COVID like Delta Variant in the US, are spreading globally, much faster than SARS-COV2 (Novel Coronavirus) SARS stands for “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2″.  

The CDC and National Institute of Health reference the COVID variant’s proper nomenclature instead of discovery location. Here we keep a note of the symptoms associated with COVID.  The “China virus” should be SARS-CoV-2 or  novel coronavirus,  New variants should be B.1.1.7, not “U.K. variant” and P.1, not the “Brazilian variant.” Using one example, B.1.1.7 was identified in 40 countries.  The point of origination matters less given that each of these variants have mutated across the world, and in countries beyond the country of origin

Is this a Covid Symptom?  

Known COVID symptoms are evolving. Coronavirus symptoms range severity from mild to severe illness.  Here is a current list of symptoms.  

When viewing this list please note that associated Covid-19 symptoms may also be symptoms of other illnesses.  Most importantly, do not use this list to ‘self treat’.  Contact your primary care physician to discern the severity, impact and treatment. If you are experiencing associated COVID symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has novel coronavirus, consult your doctor.   

A COVID patient’s illness differs even by common symptom impact.  Do not wait if a symptom is severe, but “known” for COVID. Seek medical care for persistent, problematic, or life threatening symptoms, whether COVID or not.
