The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated a list of symptoms associated with COVID-19. The new symptoms include congestion or runny nose, nausea, and diarrhea.

The new symptoms join a growing list, which already includes fever or chills, coughing, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, and a sore throat.

A new study found that the most common symptom is fever, followed by a cough. The findings, published in the online journal PLOS ONE, showed that patients reported having a fever in 78% of COVID-19 cases. The second most common symptom was a cough, which was reported by 57% of patients.

Fatigue was reported by 31% of patients, while 25% said they lost their sense of smell, and 23% had difficulty breathing.

The CDC identified specific warning signs for COVID-19 and advised anybody showing the following symptoms to seek immediate medical attention.

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face
