  The One COVID Symptom Everyone Gets Most A new study joins earlier research in suggesting that one symptom of coronavirus (COVID-19) is most common: Fever.In a study published Nov. 9 in The Journal of Emergency Medicine, scientists looked at nearly 12,000 people who were tested for COVID-19 at emergency rooms around New York City. In that group, the most common symptoms that accompanied a positive COVID test were: fever (74%), shortness of breath (68%), and cough (65%).

For health experts, one of the scariest unexplained things about the coronavirus is that it can affect people so differently: One healthy 28-year-old might contract COVID-19 and experience no symptoms at all, while another might have serious issues that culminate in a stroke. Scientists are still trying to figure out why the virus's behavior can vary so drastically within the human body, but one study has found that there may be a commonality in how COVID-19 presents itself.

A recent analysis of studies found that people infected with COVID-19 are more likely to experience symptoms in a common order: fever, cough, nausea and vomiting, then diarrhea. By looking at nearly 56,000 COVID cases documented by the World Health Organization in China, the researchers found that the coronavirus tends to cause fever first, followed by upper respiratory tract symptoms (like cough), then gastrointestinal symptoms.

These Scary COVID Symptoms Seem Neverending, Says Study

  These Scary COVID Symptoms Seem Neverending, Says Study Many of COVID-19 survivors are experiencing hardship months after being released from the hospitals—with many of them struggling to return to “normal.”Dr. Vineet Chopra of the University of Michigan Health System led a team of researchers following 1648 individuals who were hospitalized with the virus. Of them, they focused on 488 Covid-19 patients who were treated and released from the hospital between March 16 and July 1, and available for a follow-up 60-day postdischarge telephone survey.

Knowing Order of Symptoms May Speed Diagnosis

The analysis—which also found that COVID-19 is two to three times more contagious than the common flu—found that fever and cough were consistently the first two symptoms, but in some people may be followed by sore throat, headache or muscle pain before progressing to GI symptoms.

"The most likely path of COVID-19 symptoms is fever, then cough, and next either sore throat, myalgia [muscle pain], or headache, followed by nausea/vomiting, and finally diarrhea," the scientists wrote. They noted that the order of symptoms did not seem to affect the severity of disease.

The researchers suggested their findings might help doctors diagnose COVID-19 more quickly and reduce the disease's spread. "The importance of knowing first symptoms is rooted in the need to stop the spread of COVID-19," they wrote. "There is a heightened risk in COVID-19 being passed on, so faster testing and social distancing are important, especially when social distancing and quarantine measures are relaxed."
