Is It COVID-19?
If you’ve been experiencing a persistent cough, you may be concerned that you have coronavirus (COVID-19). Of course, the only way to know for sure whether you have COVID-19 is to be tested by a professional (visit this page to learn about our testing options). However, there are some important distinctions between COVID-19 and the common cold that you should watch out for:
- A cold usually causes a wet cough (one that brings up mucus), while COVID-19 typically causes a dry cough.
- COVID-19 often results in breathing difficulties and a new loss of taste or smell, while a cold does not.
- A cold typically causes sneezing and congestion, while COVID-19 does not.
- COVID-19 symptoms tend to develop more gradually than a cold (with COVID-19 symptoms appearing two to 14 days after exposure, and cold symptoms appearing one to three days after exposure).
