In most people, Covid-19 manifests as a respiratory tract infection, and many different symptoms may be present.

Among the reported symptoms are:

  • cough

  • shortness of breath
  • runny nose
  • blocked nose

A person falling ill with Covid-19 may experience one or more of these symptoms. It is fairly common to lose one’s sense of smell and taste for some time during an infection in the upper respiratory tract. Diarrhea has also been reported as a symptom.
