COVID-19 can also cause pneumonia, an infection of one or both lungs, which causes inflammation of the air sacs.
Pneumonia also causes chest pain, rapid heartbeat, sweating, shivering and a lack of appetite, and is a potentially life-threatening condition.
If the coronavirus can significantly advance, it may cause organ failure and death.
Those most at risk from severe infections are either elderly or have chronic health conditions.
