Symptoms of Coronavirus

Due to the prominent lung involvement, the most common symptoms following infection by the virus that will give you a clue that you might be getting the viral illness are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Other symptoms of the virus include sore throat, chills, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle aches, malaise, abdominal pain, and a severe headache.

If you just have a scratchy throat and no fever, or you feel a little achy, most likely you don’t have the corona virus and it could be something else, such as a cold, flu, allergies, etc. For those who have been prescribed the Coronavirus combo protocol of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, you should depend more on the more common symptoms listed above before you start taking the meds.

Of note, there are few interactions of the use of these two medications. One rare interaction problem could be development of arrhythmias in around 0.35% of those who took this combo. Since the incidence of death from coronavirus is up to 4%, the risk: benefit ratio favors use of the two meds. In other words, it most likely won’t hurt you, but could benefit you markedly.
