COVID-19 Symptoms

Province of Manitoba | About COVID-19

Symptoms range from mild (e.g., fever, cough, runny nose and sore throat) to severe (e.g., shortness of breath and breathing difficulties). While many people will develop only mild symptoms, some groups appear to be more vulnerable to COVID-19. Those at higher risk typically develop more serious, even fatal, symptoms such as pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome and kidney failure. High risk groups include those:

      • 60 years of age and older
      • living with chronic health conditions (e.g. diabetes, heart, renal or chronic lung conditions)
      • with weakened immune systems (e.g. cancer)

Symptoms of COVID-19 or other coronaviruses may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to the virus.
