The medical symptoms that are associated with COVID-19 aka Coronavirus are respiratory illness e.g. Common cold. The virus can also cause severe illnesses such as SARS i.e. Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. The symptoms are mild in some people however in others the symptoms can be severe. This has to do with the immune system of the people and their internal bodies. It is one of the most deadly viruses that originated from Wuhan province China. The virus originated from an animal market in Wuhan’s city Hubei. A highly developed city with good infrastructure, the city started first with the evacuation procedures when many people got the virus and it started to spread across Europe and the rest of Asia and the USA at a rapid pace.  The virus starts with the common symptoms of cold, i.e. sneezing and fever that turns from slight or mild to severe. However, the fever can be really deadly, therefore its best to immediately undergo some tests. 

This deadly virus originated from bats and the name of the market was the Huanan Seafood market. However, in Huanan there were no bats that were being sold, but according to the research the old virus has many similarities to the newer version of the virus. Some interpretations also say that the virus also might have originated from the snakes, but that is just a mere false claim.  Snakes were being sold at the Huanan seafood market, but researchers don’t agree that it can originate from Snakes. Some of the symptoms from the virus include;

  • Fever
  • Chest Pains
  • Chills
  • Rapid Heartbeat
  • Breathing Problems
  • Pneumonia
  • Kidney Failure
  • Headache 
  • Sore Throat
  • Cough, and 
  • Shortness of breath

These are all the symptoms that are associated with the pandemic COVID-19, and for people having the symptoms must make sure that they consult their GPs or undergo a test.
