Coronavirus symptoms: Can you actually recognise a COVID cough? Is it dangerous?
While coughing is the body’s natural mechanism to expel out irritants, differentiating a normal cough from a COVID cough can help you take timely action.
Experts say that nearly 80% of the patients diagnosed with COVID-19 suffer from mild symptoms, which include a cough, slightly high fever, headache or shortness of breath. Only 20% or those with co-morbidities suffer from severe complications. Hence, paying attention to milder symptoms can prevent complications and help a person recover faster.
Studies conducted in the recent months suggested that of all mild symptoms, most people diagnosed with COVID-19 recorded a hoarse, dry cough as a prominent symptom in the early days of infection.
