An immediate problem that I see with this article is that the “symptoms” of COVID-19 appear to be becoming more and more numerous, and more and more identical to those of routine illnesses. This is precisely what happened with HIV/AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s. It got to where someone was given a diagnosis of “AIDS” if they had an “AIDS-defining disease,” with the list of such diseases becoming longer and longer (there are currently 22 “AIDS-defining diseases). People were being diagnosed with “AIDS” without ever having an HIV test (particularly in poor areas like African countries where testing was cost-prohibitive), and even in developed countries, people would be diagnosed with “AIDS” or as “HIV positive” either without tests or after having multiple tests with inconsistent results. There were also many cases of “false positives.” There is also evidence that the medical/pharmaceutical industry killed an entire generation of HIV patients with AZT. So, yes, scumbag though he is, Rush Limbaugh is correct when he says we shouldn’t trust medical and scientific experts as though what they say is divine revelation.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made the symptoms of COVID-19 crystal clear: fever, cough, and shortness of breath. But as more and more people develop the respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus, experts are seeing a wide range of symptoms in patients—and they tend to overlap with the common cold, flu, and even allergies.
The CDC maintains those big three are the symptoms of novel coronavirus, but the World Health Organization (WHO) has a more extensive list that includes 14 different symptoms detected in people with mild cases of COVID-19. That’s a big deal, since “most people infected with the COVID-19 virus have mild disease and recover,” per a February report of a joint World Health Organization-China mission. In fact, that report found that 80% of confirmed patients had mild to moderate disease.
So, which coronavirus symptoms should you be paying closer attention to—and what should you do if you think you may be infected? Here’s what doctors want you to know.
