The vast majority shows the symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection.

Local symptoms mainly include fever, sore and itchy throat and dry cough.

Part of the patients have headache and general joint pain.

After symptomatic treatment, most symptoms can be relieved within 24 to 36 hours.

For asymptomatic infection, mild or ordinary patients, the nucleic acid turns negative very quickly after recovery, generally 5-7 days, and 11 days for some patients.


What drugs should be stored at home?

Some daily antipyretic and analgesic drugs can be properly stored at home, but there is no need to rush to buy and hoard them.

Families with children can prepare some antipyretic drugs suitable for children.

People suffering from basic diseases must regularly have drugs in daily life to control their condition, and they can reserve about one month's drugs for basic diseases at home.

Properly store antigen detection reagents as needed.


Under what circumstance should we go to the hospital in time?

The fever did not subside after three days of infection.

Cough gets seriously and causes chest pain, in particular, for elderly people, cough symptoms are not relieved, and the general cough drugs are ineffective.

Chest tightness and asthma are very serious.

People at high-risk for severe illness have persistent high fever, dyspnea and other symptoms.

There are mainly three categories of people at high-risk for severe illness: elderly people aged over 60, especially those aged over 80; patients with basic diseases; people who have not been vaccinated.
