Coronavirus symptoms and definition of a suspected case
Confirmed cases of coronavirus in Argentina register an increase and specialists announced changes in what is considered a suspicious case, which requires daily monitoring and the corresponding test that confirms or rules out the presence of the virus. Initially, a temperature equal to or greater than 37.5 ° C was an alarm factor, although it was more relevant if it was accompanied by a dry cough, shortness of breath, tiredness and tightness in the chest. Later the WHO included as symptoms of coronavirus loss of smell and taste, nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, skin rashes or color changes in the fingers or toes. Later, difficulties in speaking or moving were incorporated as new symptoms of Covid-19, so that people who felt any of these impediments had to make a medical consultation immediately. Finally, a new criterion was defined for a case to be classified as a suspected coronavirus. Now the presence of fever is not required, but it is enough to have two symptoms for health personnel to take it into account for special monitoring.
