DAY TO DAY coronavirus symptoms
This may vary for each individual. If you’re not feeling well, you should immediately consult a medical practitioner to have an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of COVID-19.
Coronavirus first symptoms:
The typical daily symptoms are concluded from multiple studies conducted.
These symptoms are broken down into:
- DAY 1 to DAY 2: The coronavirus first symptoms would be similar to the common cold. A mild sore throat, with or without fever and tiredness. Patients won’t feel any discomfort in consuming food and drink.
- DAY 3: the patient’s throats might feel a bit pain in the throat. Body temperature reads at around 36.5° Celsius. Although it’s uncommon, other symptoms like mild nausea, vomiting, or mild diarrhea are possible to set in.
- DAY 4: Throat pain becomes more serious. Other symptoms like feeling tired and joint pain start to increase a bit. The patient may show a rise in body temperature.
- DAY 5 to DAY 6: Mild fever starts. The body temperature may move above 37.2° Celsius. The second most common symptom, dry cough, also appears. Dyspnea or breathing difficulty may occur occasionally. You may be easily feeling tired in this stage. Other symptoms remain about the same. These four symptoms are among the top five key indications of COVID-19 according to WHO.
- DAY 7: The patients that haven’t start recovering by day 7get more serious coughs and breathing difficulty. Fever can get higher up to 38° Celsius. Patients may develop further headaches and body pain or worsening diarrhea if there’s any. Many patients are admitted to the hospital at this stage.
- DAY 8 to DAY 9: On the 8th day, the coronavirus symptoms are likely to be worsened for the patient who has coexisting medical conditions. Severe shortness of breath becomes more frequent. Temperature reading moves above 38°. Based on the study, Sepsis starts to affect 40% of the patients by the 9th day.
- DAY 10 to DAY 11: Doctors are ordering imaging tests like chest x-ray to capture the severity of respiratory distress in patients. May feel a loss of appetite and abdominal pain. The condition also needs immediate treatment in ICU.
- DAY 12 to DAY 14: For the survivors; the symptoms can be well-managed at this point. Fever tends to get into manageable limits and breathing difficulties may ease by 13th day. Some patients may continue to have mild cough even after discharge from the hospital.
- DAY 15 to DAY 16: is the opposite condition for the rest of the minority patients. For those people who belong to the fragile group, the possibility of acute cardiac injury or kidney injury cannot be ruled out
- DAY 17 to DAY 19: COVID-19 fatality cases happen at around day 18. Before the time, vulnerable patients may develop a secondary infection caused by a new pathogen in the lower respiratory tract. The severe condition may then lead to blood coagulation and ischemia.
- DAY 20 to DAY 22: The surviving patients are recovered completely from the disease and are discharged from the hospital.
To summarize, fatality rate for COVID 19 is quite low. Basic Coronavirus symptoms need to be identified and monitored. If we can detect it from coronavirus first symptoms itself, dealing with the disease will be much easier.
