Coronavirus Symptoms

Symptoms experienced during coronavirus infections

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the median incubation period for SARS-CoV-2 is 4 to 5 days. However, it can range anywhere from 2 to 14 days.

Not everyone with a SARS-CoV-2 infection will feel unwell. It’s possible to have the virus and not develop symptoms. When symptoms are present, they’re typically mild and develop slowly.

The most common symptoms are:

  • a gradually worsening fever
  • a gradually worsening cough
  • fatigue
  • shortness of breath

Some people with COVID-19 may sometimes experience additional symptoms, such as:

  • runny or stuffy nose
  • sore throat
  • headache
  • muscle aches and pains
  • diarrhea, vomiting, and other gastrointestinal symptoms
  • chills
  • repeated shaking to go along with the chills
  • loss of taste or loss of smell
