What Is The Difference Between A Fever And A Loss Of Taste Or Smell?
These days, the “traditional” symptoms of loss of smell ( Anosmia), breathlessness and fever are less common.
Anosmia is ranked 14th on the list of most common symptoms. Shortness of breath ranks 16th. Anosmia was once a major indicator of COVID-19. However, only 16% of those with the disease now experience it.
What Are The Other Symptoms?
ZOE was the first to demonstrate that there are many COVID-19 symptoms.

What Should You Do If You Have Symptoms?
You should rest at home if your throat feels sore or you start to sneeze less often.
This is especially important if you live with or work with someone who is more at risk.
Sneezing can be a major way viruses spread. To reduce the spread of viruses, cover any coughs or sneezes you have with tissue or your elbow. After you have washed your hands, don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
