Chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and a loss of taste or smell.
Those are the six new symptoms the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cautioned could be signs of the coronavirus.
The additions come as health experts’ understanding of the confounding disease evolves. The CDC previously listed fever, cough and shortness of breath as symptoms.
Shortness of breath was tweaked to “shortness of breath or difficulty breathing” by the CDC.
Frontline Doctors Confident In Reopening America
Two doctors, who have administered more than 5,000 coronavirus tests, say that coronavirus is similar to the seasonal flu, the quarantine is not helping with building coronavirus immunity, and they are confident that reopening is safe.
The two frontline physicians, Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, are the owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, California.
The doctors are presenting medical advice about the coronavirus that is far different than what the Democrats and other health officials such as Dr. Fauci have been saying over the past weeks.
Accelerated Urgent Care has tested 5,213 patients within the county, which makes up half of all testing done in California’s Kern County which led to Dr. Erickson stating:
“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no!
Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no.
Do we need to test them and get them back to work? Absolutely.
Now that we have the facts, it’s time to get back to work,”
Dr. Erickson went on to add:
“If you study the numbers in 2017 and 2018, we had 50 to 60 million with the flu, and we had a similar death rate in the deaths the United States were 43,545—similar to the flu of 2017-2018.
We always have between 37,000 and 60,000 deaths in the United States, every single year.
No pandemic talk. No shelter-in-place. No shutting down businesses.”
Another Somewhat Bizarre Coronavirus Symptom Dubbed “COVID Toes”
As USA today reported: Another more recent phenomenon: purple or blue lesions on a patient’s feet and toes, most commonly appearing in children and young adults, dubbed “COVID toes.”
Though experts can’t pinpoint the condition, some hypothesized that it could be excess inflammation, a clotting of blood vessels or a thrombotic disorder known as purpura fulminans.
