With coronavirus spreading around the globe, including in the United States, health experts say it's more important than ever to be aware of COVID-19's signs and symptoms.
While infectious diseases don't discriminate, and anyone could potentially become ill, older Americans and those with underlying health conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease and diabetes, are at greater risk for developing severe symptoms and life-threatening complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
You should call ahead before going to a medical office or to the emergency room. If you develop emergency warning signs, such as difficulty breathing, persistent chest pain or pressure, bluish lips or face, or new confusion, seek medical attention immediately.
