According to the CDC, fever, cough, and shortness of breath are the main symptoms of COVID-19. Severity of the symptoms range from mild to life-threatening. The CDC recommends calling your doctor if you think you’ve been exposed to the virus and have these symptoms. You should get medical attention immediately if you have difficulty breathing, persistent pain or pressure in your chest, bluish lips or face, or new confusion.
