What Are The Symptoms Of The Coronavirus? How Long Do They Take To Appear?

This coronavirus shares many symptoms of the flu, a common cold, or a regular upper respiratory infection. According to the CDC, current COVID-19 symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Seek immediate medical care the following symptoms develop:

  • Trouble breathing

  • Pneumonia
  • Sepsis
  • Death

Generally, symptoms begin to appear within two to fourteen days. There are some indications that people infected with COVID-19 do not display any signs, but still may be very contagious.


How Does Someone Become Infected From Covid-19?

It is currently believed that the virus is transmitted via droplets when people coughs or breathes. These droplets fly through the air to infect others. If someone coughs into their hand, it can then be left on surfaces they touch. Facemasks help contain any droplets someone may breathe out. This is especially important if they are infected but are unaware of it because they are not showing symptoms.

I Don’T Feel Well, And I Have Some Of These Symptoms. Am I Infected? What Are The Risk Factors For The Covid-19 Coronavirus?

Community infections are active in the Willow Grove area, but there are still other infections out there that could be causing your symptoms. For example, the flu and upper respiratory infections have symptoms that are similar to COVID-19. The main symptoms we see in many coronavirus cases include:

  • A dry cough that produces no phlegm or mucus
  • A fever
  • Loss of taste and smell

If you have symptoms above, do not visit AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove without first calling. Speak with our staff about your symptoms, concerns, and if you are at risk for COVID-19. We can provide guidance over the phone on what to do next and may suggest a telemedicine appointment so a provider can evaluate you.


How Can I Prevent An Infection From Covid-19?

The guidelines for preventing the flu can be used to protect you from the COVID-19. These guidelines are:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching surfaces and then your face
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick
  • Cover your nose and mouth if you feel sick
  • Where a surgical mask or a face mask while traveling in public.

For additional protection:

  • Avoid live animal markets
  • Cook food thoroughly
  • Wear a surgical mask & eye protection at all times.

Is The Coronavirus Related To SARS Or MERS? Why Is It Called Covid-19?

Other coronaviruses can affect humans. Two recent outbreaks of coronaviruses include SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.) A coronavirus caused both of these outbreaks. SARS is thought to be more closely related to COVID-19 than it is to MERS. SARS also first originated in Asia, while MERS was first seen in Saudi Arabia.

2019-nCov was initially assigned to this virus due to changes in how new infections are named. “2019" represented the year it was first detected, and “nCov" stood for “Novel Coronavirus." “Novel" is used because it looks like no other virus ever seen before. World Health Organization officials changed the way infections are named to avoid misinformation or fear. They no longer name things like Lyme Disease, named after a town, or Legionnaires Disease, named after the convention when it first infected people. The name COVID-19 now identifies this coronavirus. This name denotes the year it was detected (2019) and its status as a new coronavirus. Another name some scientists use to describe this virus is SARS-CoV-2 or “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2."

AFC Urgent Care’s walk-in clinic in Willow Grove is up to date with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control. Do you have questions about the coronavirus? Feel free to call if you have any questions!

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • Why does AFC provide two different COVID tests?

    We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.

  • How long does it take to get a COVID test?

    We're able to get many patients in and out in a matter of minutes, but the length of time you'll spend in our clinic will depend on wait times that day.

  • How much does it cost to get a COVID test?

    That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact your local clinic for the details.
