Bhubaneswar, April 19: It’s been more than a year since the deadly coronavirus wreaked havoc in our country, and even after several efforts to contain the spread of covid 19, the second wave of the virus is currently spreading like wildfire in the nation.
While we all know the most common symptoms for COVID are dry cough, fever, loss of taste, diarrhoea, lethargy and loss of smell, but what most people are unaware of, is when to isolate or get tested because COVID-19 has a wide range of symptoms and medical complications.
Those are muscle pain, loss of appetite, headaches, mild to moderate pain in the hands and body, numbness of the abdomen, redness of the eyes, dry mouth and lips, swelling of the mouth, tongue swelling, memory loss, and dermatitis.
Symptoms include itchy skin, sore throat, nasal congestion, and slight chest pain. “If any of these symptoms are present, it could be Covid,” said Manoj Sahu, Head of Department of Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases, IMS & SUM Hospital.
