“It’s possible that symptoms are so mild that people dismiss it as allergies, a case of the sniffles, or a headache from another cause,” Laura Morris, MD, family physician and COVID-19 vaccine co-chair at the University of Missouri, told Verywell.
Studies conducted early in the pandemic revealed that infections caused by circulating COVID-19 strains typically began with a fever, followed by a cough, nausea and vomiting, and then diarrhoea.

According to Morris, the average patient will have symptoms for about five days. Some people experience symptoms for up to 14 days. Others have no symptoms at all.
