Symptoms of COVID-19 in Older Adults

Older people infected with COVID-19 tend to develop vague symptoms. This is primarily due to a weaker defense system of the body and a decline in immune function. As a result, there are difficulties in diagnosing COVID-19 and great changes of wrong treatment.

  • Loss of smell and taste
  • Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, pressure in the chest
  • Dry cough
  • High body temperature chills
  • Muscle and joints aches
  • Lingering tiredness
  • Headache
  • Diarrhea, nausea, vomiting

Elderly COVID-19 patients often have underlying health conditions, such as cardiovascular and respiratory diseases or diabetes. Flare-ups may also be misleading and dispel suspicions of COVID-19. To get the full picture, ensure accurate diagnosis, and determine the disease's severity, a series of medical tests is required. At Lake Conway, we have all the necessary facilities.
