These are some of the symptoms that can be seen in the affected person. If some of these can be seen in you or people around you, the test to detect the virus should be done. This will help not just to keep you aware but also to the people around you.
The more you will take precautions less would be the chances of exposure to the virus. Precautions are the best way to stay safe. Self-hygiene, social distancing, and sanitization are some of the cares that should be taken strictly.
