People Contracting COVID-19 May Have a Predictable Order of Symptoms

A new international study that included more than 55,000 COVID-19 cases finds that people contracting COVID-19 may show a predictable order of symptoms and this order differs from those in case of flu and other coronaviruses.People Contracting COVID-19 May Have a Predictable Order of Symptoms

At the present moment, the available evidence shows that the most likely order of initial COVID-19 symptoms has a tendency to start with a fever and that progress to a cough and muscle pain with nausea and/or vomiting, and finally diarrhea.

For the study, an international team of scientists used the World Health Organization (WHO) data from over 55,000 confirmed cases in |China. The authors of the study compared the order of symptoms of the novel coronavirus to thousands of symptoms of flu cases, collected by the University of Michigan, about 150 severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) cases in the Toronto area, and a few of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) cases reported in Korea.

Joseph Larsen, one of the study authors who researches computational biology and bioinformatics at the University of Southern California, says: “The order of the symptoms matters. Knowing that each illness progresses differently means that doctors can identify sooner whether someone likely has COVID-19, or another illness, which can help them make better treatment decisions.”
