The Centers for Disease Control, which had just three symptoms on its “Symptoms of Coronavirus” list, added six additional ones over the weekend.

Symptoms generally appear within two to 14 days after exposure to the novel coronavirus.

The additional symptoms include chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and a loss of taste or smell and were added as researchers’ understanding of the disease evolves.

The CDC’s original list included fever, cough, and shortness of breath as the only symptoms. The latter was amended to be “shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.”

The agency cautions people who experience trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or an inability to arouse, or bluish lips or face to immediately seek medical attention.
