NEW symptoms of the coronavirus have been added to the list of what to look out for if you suspect having the virus.
The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) have officially added three new symptoms alongside existing ones.
These new symptoms to look out for include:
• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
The CDCP say people with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
The three new signs also join the existing symptoms of the disease – including a high fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, a new loss of taste or smell and a sore throat.
The news comes after the UK’s death toll from COVID-19 sadly surpassed 43,500 with new infections being confirmed daily, adding to the UK confirmed total of 310,000.
In Wales, as of June 27, there have been a total of 15,577 confirmed cases of the virus reported by local health boards.
Sadly, five new deaths were confirmed in Wales as being linked to the virus which brings the death toll up to 1,502 people at present.
