Runny nose or congestion, nausea and diarrhoea have been added by the US Centres for Disease Control (CDC) to the growing list of Coronavirus symptoms.
According to US Centre for Disease control, the new symptoms are likely to appear between two to 14 days after exposure to the virus.
The CDC reports that anyone with the following symptoms may have COVID-19.
The symptoms are fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhoea.
“This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19,” the website states.
The US federal department also warned: “Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.”
This comes as almost 10million people have been infected by the disease worldwide with nearly 500,000 deaths.
