The following is a list of COVID-19 symptoms as outlined by the CDC. You'll notice that many of these symptoms, including fever, body aches and a sore throat, are also common with the flu. More unusually, one possible sign of a coronavirus infection is a loss of taste or smell.
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Just because you have any of the above symptoms, it doesn't necessarily mean you have the coronavirus. The CDC also states that "this list is not all-inclusive." So if you feel ill, call your health care provider.
