Most Common Coronavirus (COVID-19) Symptoms
As the coronavirus outbreak grows more severe in Bellevue, the best course of action is not to panic, but to be vigilant.
While most individuals infected with COVID-19 experience a full recovery, the more vulnerable members of our community are at risk of developing a severe infection. The World Health Organization warns that severe cases can result in “acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.” To protect yourself and those around you, it is imperative that you follow coronavirus tips from trusted health organizations.
Avoid large social and professional gatherings whenever possible. Consider working from home and canceling any travel plans until the outbreak is under control. When you do interact with other people, avoid physical contact such as shaking hands. If you live with an individual who is especially vulnerable, the CDC recommends “conducting yourself as if you were a significant risk to the person.” Wash hands thoroughly before interacting with a vulnerable family member and create a protected space for them within your home.
The most common symptoms of Coronavirus include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you or someone close to you exhibits these symptoms, call your doctor for medical advice. However, if you notice emergency warning signs outlined by the CDC, seek immediate medical attention. These include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
It is important to note that there may also be asymptomatic carriers that don’t show any signs of symptoms.
Remember that sanitization within your home or business is especially important at this time. Wash hands frequently, ensure your property is properly ventilated, and regularly disinfect surfaces and door knobs.
If you have a business or facility with high foot traffic, it may also be a good idea to have your property professionally disinfected to provide your customers and employees with peace of mind.
