When a Corona patient’s body is infected with COVID-19, the signs that can occur are vomiting and diarrhea. Although only 4 percent of patients experience it, a person also needs to be tested for COVID-19 if the condition appears accompanied by coughing, shortness of breath, and high body temperature.
2. Sore throat

This is because more than 52.2% of COVID-19 patients actually experience this condition as their initial symptom.

4. Losing the ability to smell and taste
The next sign is a loss of the ability to smell and taste. If you have or are experiencing these symptoms, immediately isolate and take a COVID-19 test to find out whether you have been exposed to the virus or not.
Headaches can also be a symptom of a person if they are infected with the Corona virus. This symptom is also one of the signs that are not realized. Because someone may not pay too much attention to the difference between ordinary headaches and headaches due to COVID-19.
