Covid-19 Symptoms and Diagnosis
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is the disease caused by a novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause respiratory illnesses, like the common cold and pneumonia. Learn more about coronaviruses.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Most people infected with the novel coronavirus have mild to moderate cold and flu-like symptoms, including:
- Shortness of breath
- Recent loss of taste or smell
Some people, often those with other medical complications, may develop more severe respiratory illnesses, including pneumonia. Other people could be asymptomatic. This means they are infected with the novel coronavirus, but have no symptoms. These people can still transmit the disease. Learn more about the symptoms

The respiratory symptoms of COVID-19 typically appear an average of 5-6 days after exposure, but may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
