Coronavirus: Three COVID-19 symptoms that could indicate pneumonia 1

Coronavirus reports have shown that the risk COVID-19 poses to the general population is not equally distributed. Data suggests that most people will experience only mild symptoms or none at all but certain at-risk groups are more likely to develop severe symptoms.

As the health body explains, severe symptoms such as high fever, severe cough, and shortness of breath often indicate pneumonia.

What should I do if I spot these symptoms?

According to the NHS, mild pneumonia can usually be treated at home with rest, antibiotics and by drinking plenty of fluids.

More severe cases may need hospital treatment, however.

You should use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if your symptoms get worse and you’re not sure what to do, the health body advises.

What other symptoms of COVID-19 should I look out for?

The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently updated its list of COVID-19 symptoms.
