Signs of coronavirus and coronavirus symptoms in humans are mostly displayed as • Fever • Cough • Shortness of breath. Other coronavirus symptoms include what you might experience with a typical cold, such as a runny nose, weepy eyes and sore throat. For most people these are the likely symptoms. This would be a time to call your local walk-in clinic and see if they do testing, and if not, go to the nearest hospital that does testing and get yourself tested for coronavirus. However these human coronavirus symptoms may also worsen to flu like symptoms with weakness, headache and coronavirus fatigue. When coronavirus in humans is really bad a person may contract pneumonia, have coronavirus acute respiratory syndrome and become very ill with the coronavirus symptoms.
