Coronavirus Outbreak; 10 Common Misconceptions

9. You will know if you get the virus

Not likely, especially if you’re young and healthy. COVID-19 causes many symptoms that you may feel if you have a common cold or influenza. But they can be very mild, and there are people who have no symptoms at all. That’s one of the factors that made this virus an epidemic because asymptomatic people are spreading the virus around without realizing it.

Thus, we should call for social responsibility. Even if you don’t feel any symptoms at all, consider all of the precautions. And if you have a mild cough or sneeze, do not automatically think it is due to allergies or a common cold. Take care of your health and that of others, considering that spreading the virus can take the lives of susceptible people.
