Frequently asked questions about coronavirus or COVID-19

These recommendations may change depending on the evolution of the disease

1.- What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The main symptoms are a cough, a high temperature and shortness of breath. However, these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the virus since these symptoms are similar to those of other common illnesses such as cold and flu.

At its worst, the virus could lead to severe pneumonia, breathing difficulties, kidney failure and even death. These complications usually occur in older people or people who already suffer from other illnesses such as heart and lung diseases or impoverished immune systems.
