These join

the most common

 that causes the coronavirus like

fever, dry cough, tiredness

, shortness of breath or chest tightness, as well as nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, rashes, or color changes in the fingers or toes.

As the United Nations agency recalls,

80 percent of people with COVID-19 recover without needing to go to hospital

Although one in five experience a severe condition for which they must be admitted, especially those with high blood pressure, heart or lung problems, diabetes or cancer.

However, the WHO recalls that

“anyone” can catch the virus and become “seriously ill”

, which highlights the need for all those who have fever or cough and, in addition, breathe with difficulty, feel chest pain or tightness or have difficulties to speak or move, seek medical attention immediately.

If possible, he adds, it is recommended

call your healthcare professional or medical center first

so that they refer the patient to the appropriate healthcare facility. Also, remember the importance of going to the center with a mask and, as far as possible, staying one meter away from others and not touching surfaces with your hands.

“It is important to stay at least one meter away from others. Droplets can fall on objects and surfaces that surround the person, such as

tables, doorknobs and railings

So other people can become infected if they touch those objects or surfaces and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth. Therefore, it is important to wash your hands frequently with soap and water or with an alcohol-based disinfectant, “highlights the WHO in the document.
