Within 24 hours after President Donald Trump tweeted that he and his wife First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus, the White House issued a statement saying the President had “mild symptoms” of the virus.
That phrase – “mild symptoms” – came from Mark Meadows, Chief of Staff of the White House, at a news conference that discussed in part about the President’s health.
“Mild Symptoms,” said Robert Glatter, MD, Men health Counselor and Emergency Doctor in Lenox Hill, New York City “may include a dry cough, mild fever, muscle pain, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, loss of smell, and loss of taste.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that “A wide range of symptoms have been reported in people with COVID-1
And Dr. Glatter points out that “COVID-19 also has the potential to rapidly progress to more severe symptoms such as difficulty breathing, chest pain, escalating fever, dizziness, and other progressive neurological symptoms.” (More on this below.)
“Progressive neurological symptoms can include strokes because the virus increases the risk of clotting,” says Dr. Smoother. “Many people who develop progressive symptoms can and do recover, but there is also a risk of the longer-term or chronic symptoms we see in long-distance drivers.”
Symptoms can appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
- Fever or chills
- to cough
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body pain
- a headache
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Constipation or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
- Dizziness has also been reported by some.
Certain symptoms are considered emergency warning signs that you may be infected with the coronavirus and should see a doctor right away:
- Difficulty breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion
- Inability to wake up or stay awake
- Bluish lips or face
