The Liverpool Echo reported that several people who have had COVID-19 show no symptoms at all but still carry the virus, which make them wonder if they’ve had coronavirus before without knowing.
Moreover, people who had no symptoms when they initially caught the virus are also reporting having ‘long covid’ symptoms months later.
Almost one in seven people who test positive for Covid-19 are still suffering symptoms three months later, according to new UK figures.
Brain Fog (Mental Fatigue)
Brain fog has plagued ‘long covid’ patients, as people detailed accounts of experiencing it for months after having the virus.
A High Temperature
Although numbers vary for different people, a high temperature is considered a fever when it reaches 37.7C (100F). People can tell they have a fever if they feel hot to the touch on your chest or back.
You may have caught the coronavirus if your chest starts to feel tight or you cannot breath, which is called “Dyspnea.”
Dyspnea is a medical term for shortness of breath, sometimes described as “air hunger.”
Loss of Smell or Taste
The British Association of Otorhinolaryngology warned that losing your sense of smell or taste may indicate that you have Covid-19.
Moreover, the ear, nose and throat specialist recommended anyone who has these symptoms to adhere to self-isolation. Many people have reported not getting their smell nor taste back weeks after contracting the virus.
A study, by the American Journal of Gastroenterology, linked stomach problems to Covid-19, as loss of appetite, enduring a tummy ache can be considered a sign of something more innocuous.
About 48.5% of 204 people who have been infected by the virus in China’s Hubei province had digestive symptoms such as ‘Diarrhoea’, according to the study.
Besides cold, flu and many viruses in general, feeling tired or fatigued is another symptom of the coronavirus, which is incredibly difficult to overcome.
New research has indicated that an eye infection such as conjunctivitis may be a symptom of Covid-19.
“It is recognized that any upper respiratory tract infection may result in viral conjunctivitis as a secondary complication, and this is also the case with Covid-19,”the College of Optometrists said.
“However, it is unlikely that a person would present with viral conjunctivitis secondary to Covid-19 without other symptoms of fever or a continuous cough as conjunctivitis seems to be a late feature where is has occurred.”
A Dry Cough
Persistent cough can be identified as a symptom of the Covid-19, which is generally new for you or different if you generally have a smoker’s cough.
