Up to about 50% of people infected with SARS-CoV-2 are asymptomatic spreaders. About 80% of those who are symptomatic, developing COVID-19, have mild disease displaying dry cough, fever, and fatigue. The resulting 20% of symptomatic patients accounts for those who develop progressive respiratory distress and sometimes multi-organ failure, among other complications. We’re learning more about anosmia, cardiac injury, and “COVID-toes.” What’s known about COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 continues to evolve. Dr. Raymund Razonable walks through a recently published update on the management of COVID-19.
