Researchers, “King’s College” London, warned of several “sudden” symptoms that could be early warning signs of the virus.
Using data from the COVID Symptom Study app, the researchers created a list of the most common symptoms patients reported in the first seven days after the onset of the disease.
The researchers explained: “We were busy searching for the early symptoms of” Covid-19 “, really, because this information is necessary to help us all stop the spread of the virus in the coming months. And if we can detect cases based on the symptoms sooner, then people will be able to start isolating themselves. In those first few days, stop the accidental spread of the virus. “
Two of the most surprising early warning signs revealed in the study are headache and fatigue.
“Our data shows that the most common early symptoms are actually headache (82%) and fatigue (72%) – and this is the case for all age groups. Only 9% of adults with COVID-19 are between the ages of 18 and 65,” the researchers said. Years old did not suffer from headache or fatigue. ”
Despite these high levels, only 1% of people who reported fatigue or headaches through the app ended up being tested for COVID-19.
The researchers added: “While headache and fatigue are common in people with” Covid-19 “(along with other symptoms), it is unlikely that the presence of any or both of these symptoms alone is a sign of disease.” What is really unsurprising is that fever, persistent cough and loss of smell were strong early indicators of “Covid-19”.
The team said: “40% of all age groups reported having a fever in the first seven days, and loss of smell and persistent coughing are still the main symptoms to watch out for – so people with the three classic symptoms of persistent cough, fever, or loss of smell, should be.” Certainly seek to test for “Covid”.
Researchers are continuing to monitor the app, and will release new results soon.
