COVID-19 is a disease that is one of its kind. However, as fatal as it may be, the symptoms triggered by the deadly virus are quite common and similar to the symptoms of other respiratory illnesses. So, until and unless we have a coronavirus vaccine in our hands, it is only natural to feel anxious over any sign of sickness that resembles the symptoms of COVID-19.
