Since many symptoms can be attributed to COVID-19, it can be difficult to know if you have the virus or have another disease.

Symptoms like continued coughing and high temperature, for example, could be confused with influenza. Are cold symptoms similar to COVID-19?

What are the key symptoms of covid-19?

A high temperature may indicate that you have become infected with the virus.

If you feel warm when touching your chest or back, it shows that you likely have a high temperature and may be experiencing COVID-19.

Another continuous cough is one of the most frequent symptoms of the coronavirus.

If you cough several times for more than an hour or have three or more situation of coughing within 24 hours, you could have COVID-19.

Another common symptom is a loss of taste or change in your sense of smell.

Most people who are symptomatic have one or more.

However, about one in three individuals suffering from COVID-19 have no symptoms.

There are less common symptoms that must not be overlooked.

People with COVID-19 have sometimes mistaken the virus for the common cold, as symptoms may include runny nose and congestion.

According to a survey conducted by the Bureau of National Statistics, the most frequently reported symptoms are cough, headache and fatigue.

The Zoe study on COVID-19 symptoms revealed symptoms similar to cold, headache, sore throat and runny nose.

The research further pointed out that vaccinated patients develop the infection primarily through frequent sneezing, although in unvaccinated patients it is often considered a sign of cold or allergy rather than infection.

“If you’ve been vaccinated and start sneezing a lot without an explanation, you should stay home and get a COVID test, especially if you are living or working around people who are at greater risk from the disease,” advised the COVID Symptom Study app researchers.

The study also identified these as the most common symptoms of the delta variant, which is currently the most common variant in the United States, the United Kingdom and India.
