New Coronavirus Symptoms

1. Chills
Many of the symptoms of the coronavirus are similar to those of the flu. For example, having the chills, or an inability to get warm, is a new symptom the CDC lists for coronavirus.

2. Repeated Shaking With Chills
It’s not just chills, but repeated shaking from the chills that is a symptom of COVID-19, according to the CDC.

3. Muscle Pain
Aches and pains are synonymous with having the flu, but COVID-19 also presents as muscle pain, the CDC now notes.

4. Headache
There are many reasons you could have a headache during these very trying times. But the CDC wants you to know that a headache could also be a symptom of the coronavirus.

5. Sore Throat
The COVID-19 contagion primarily enters the respiratory system through your nasal passage, which can leave you with a sore throat, the CDC says.

6. New Loss Of Taste Or Smell
Anosmia and hyposmia (loss or change in sense of smell) and dysgeusia (change in ability to taste) have been mentioned a lot in recent weeks when it comes to coronavirus symptoms. But the CDC has made it official by noting that a new loss of the sense of smell and/or taste suggests one might have the coronavirus.

Coronavirus/COVID-19 Recommendations:
Limit your exposure to coronavirus by staying away from large groups of people and anyone who has recently traveled. Watch for symptoms such as low grade fever (Below 100 degrees), headache, dry cough, shortness of breath, and fatigue.
