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
- 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.
