In this video, you will learn about the symptoms associated with COVID-19. They are quite a bit different from a regular cold. The disease seems to start with a fever, followed by a dry cough.
Around 80% of confirmed cases are mild and can stay home whereas 20% are more severe and need inpatient care.
We also discuss a paper published in the respected journal The Lancet that describes the clinical course of 99 cases hospitalized for SARS-CoV-2 associated pneumonia.
