Two New Symptoms Discovered For a Possible Contraction of Coronavirus


New symptoms of the coronavirus were added by the center. The document published was meant for health professionals to use as a reference.

In addition to nine other symptoms, loss of smell and taste has been added to the list in the “Clinical Management Protocol: COVID-19” document.

Two new symptoms discovered for coronavirus

Fever, cough, myalgia, shortness of breath, expectoration, rhinorrhea, diarrhea, and sore throat are the other symptoms noted.

Person-to-person transmission occurs directly only through close contact. To be more specific, when an infected person sneezes or coughs, the respiratory drops released are the main culprits, according to the Health Ministry.

The document says, “These droplets may also land on surfaces, where the virus remains viable. Infection can also occur if a person touches an infected surface and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.”

The Health Ministry also added that those who have underlying diseases that are non-communicable like diabetes, cardiac disease, or hypertension are at high risk. 

Along with this, those citizens above the age of 60 are also vulnerable to COVID-19.

So far, there has been no vaccine developed for the virus yet. The center has added that “investigational therapies” are being pursued.

They also added that “Use of these drugs is subjected to limited availability in the country as of now. Currently, these drugs should only be used in a defined subgroup of patients.”

The mentioned drugs are tocilizumab, convalescent plasma therapy, hydroxychloroquine, and remdesivir. Remdesivir is a drug that can be taken for emergency situations.

In the U.S., the top medical watchdog has added new symptoms to a list of previously known ones on April 28. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC has added new symptoms like repeated shaking with chills, the new loss of taste and smell, headache, muscle pain, and chills. 

The CDC’s officials are working in advanced laboratories that are directly involved. The organization globally tracks diseases. 

It is important to note that the list of symptoms isn’t all-inclusive and that people should consult doctors for concerning or severe symptoms.

The new symptoms they found were not found on the World Health Organization’s web page at that time.
