by whom and when

Corona Virus (Covid-19) Symptoms Fever, tiredness and a dry cough. Some patients may also have a runny nose, sore throat, nasal congestion and aches and pains or diarrhoea. Some people report losing their sense of taste and/or smell.

About 80% of people who get Covid-19 experience a mild case – about as serious as a regular cold and recover without needing any special treatment.

About one in six people become seriously ill. The elderly and people with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems, overweight, smokers, diabetes, or chronic respiratory conditions, are at a greater risk of serious illness from Covid-19.

There is currently no vaccine. Recovery depends on the strength of the immune system.
