Novel coronavirus: what are the symptoms?


So there’s a fairly wide spectrum, in
terms of clinical illness. It does sound like a lot of the cases can be mild.
There are definitely some more severe cases and those can be pneumonia or they can lead to respiratory failure and there have been a few deaths, but the
symptoms are really nonspecific. So they are a lot like what we would see with
influenza virus. So those are things like fever, dry cough, sore throat, muscle aches, headaches… those kind of things. So unfortunately there’s no specific symptom associated with this particular virus.
