Q: WHEN IS COUGH A SYMPTOM OF CORONA VIRUS?
A: Common symptoms of corona virus are a fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing and cough. The cough can be of any type, but it is most commonly a dry cough.
Unfortunately, most of these symptoms are present in a serious common cold or flu, and so they are not necessarily symptoms of corona virus every time they are experienced.
To be safe, any time these symptoms are observed together, after recent travel or contact with people who have been diagnosed with the virus, or in locations with community transmission, please consult your doctor or call the COVID-19 hotline. Calling in with your symptoms is a better idea than visiting the health facility for now.
The hotline will advise on the next course of action.
Stay safe, people! .
