In US news and current events today, these COVID-19 patients are sharing about their experience with the virus.

Per the CDC, common symptoms of the coronavirus include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. These symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure. Other symptoms may include shortness of breath, aches and pains, a sore throat, diarrhea, nausea or a runny nose.

Most infected people will develop mild to moderate symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment. But older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at a higher risk for severe illness and death.

The CDC recommends telephoning a doctor immediately if you have signs like trouble breathing, persistent chest pain or pressure, new confusion or inability to arouse, or bluish lips or face. For people with mild COVID-19 symptoms, the best thing they can do is stay at home to protect other people in their community from getting sick. The quarantine period for COVID-19 is 14 days.
