TAMPA (WFLA) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday expanded the list of coronavirus symptoms, which may appear anywhere from two days to two weeks after exposure.
The updated list of coronavirus symptoms from the CDC include:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
Until recently, the CDC website included just three possible symptoms of coronavirus, including cough, fever, and shortness of breath.
The federal health agency has now tripled the number of symptoms that could be identifiers of the disease, including loss of taste or smell.
There are more than 880,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus and over 50,000 deaths in the United States, according to Johns Hopkins University.
