CDC Adds 6 New Coronavirus Symptoms to List

Six new coronavirus symptoms have been added to a list from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new symptoms include:

  • chills
  • repeated shaking with chills
  • muscle pain
  • headache
  • sore throat
  • new loss of taste or smell

Previously listed symptoms of coronavirus include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, gastrointestinal upset (including diarrhea), rash and testicular inflammation.

Also on the list: emergency warning signs that a case of COVID-19 requires immediate medical attention. These warning signs include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, any new confusion or inability to arouse, bluish lips or face, the CDC said.

This list of emergency warning signs is not all-inclusive, the agency said. Consult your medical provider about any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you, the CDC advised.

Call 911 if you have a medical emergency, and tell the operator that you have, or think you might have, COVID-19. If possible, put on a cloth face covering before medical help arrives.
