CDC adds six symptoms to its COVID-19 List

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has added six new symptoms to its existing list of symptoms for COVID-19.

The CDC has long said that fever, cough, and shortness of breath are indications that someone might have the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. It has now added more conditions that may come with the disease: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and new loss of taste or smell.

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Also, this list is not all-inclusive, and the CDC recommends consulting a medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
