The study comes from Wuhan, China, where the coronavirus first erupted in the world. Studies show that people who are infected with coronavirus can begin to show signs of fever, fatigue, and difficulty breathing. Data were collected from patients admitted to Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital and Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital from December 29, 2019 to January 31, 2020.
Most people have a fever of more than 100 Fahrenheit and dry cough and large sections of the first day. Patientaccess.com clinical director adds that muscle pains and fatigue are common symptoms. Sore throat and nosebleed were rare on the first day in patients.
A study of 138 patients in Wuhan found that 10 percent had vomiting and diarrhoea in the first few days after the corona infection. It was after this that many people got the flu.
Not all of the symptoms mentioned earlier may be seen in all Covid 19 patients. Even with these symptoms, no one can be sure that someone is infected with the corona. Patients often show the same symptoms, even with a common cold or flu.
Some of the patients diagnosed with Covid 19 did not show many of these symptoms. Experts remind that some people have never seen any symptoms.
A study of 138 patients at Zhongnan Hospital, Wuhan University, showed signs of acute respiratory distress over five days. Most of them showed the symptoms of the first days.
Older people and those with early respiratory distress may find it difficult to breathe these days. Symptoms such as weight gain in the chest, shortness of breath, shortness of breath, and increased heartburn may manifest on the fifth day.

By this time the fever will slowly disappear. But the cough will still persist. Researchers have found that people with Covid19 may suffer from chronic cough. Of the 191 patients studied, 45% had coughing after 12 days.
This is a crucial day. Those who have less symptoms, chances of recovery is high. if respiratory distress is high, chances of recovery are less and the respiratory distress is seen to keep increasing till death.
