Of course, as the app’s team pointed out, having one or more of these symptoms does not mean it’s definitely due to COVID-19, as they can also occur with other illnesses.
“However, these symptoms have been reported more often by people who have a positive test than those testing negative,” they said.
The symptoms extend beyond the “classic” symptoms – high temperature (fever), persistent cough and loss of smell or taste.
Other warning signs include:
- Unusual tiredness (fatigue)
- Sore throat
- Sudden confusion (delirium), especially in older people
- Skin rash
- Changes in the mouth or tongue (COVID tongue)
- Red and sore fingers or toes (COVID fingers/toes)
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pains
- Muscle pains
- Hoarse voice
- Skipping meals
- Abdominal pains
- Runny nose.
