Still the complete information about COVID-19 is unknown, and research professionals were working harder to get the real underlying picture behind COVID-19. When it comes to COVID-19, there is more misinformation or rumour around the internet. Which could possibly get you into depression. To avoid that issue, the information presented in this Article is mainly collected from the authentic resources, which include Centre for disease control and prevention- United States, National Health Service – United kingdom, World Health Organizations And other,Scientific studies published in authentic Journals.

In Detail, A Study of 1099 hospitalized patients, identified that the fever was present in only 44% of patients, however later the fever developed in almost 89% of the patients hospitalized. Only less than 10% of the cases reported common symptoms like headache, confusion, running nose, sore throat, hemoptysis (Coughing Up Blood), vomiting and diarrhea. Few of the patients also reported loss of sense of smell. One study found that as many as 13% of RT-PCR(Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction) confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection in children were asymptomatic, meaning that they haven’t had any symptoms during the detection of COVID-19.
