This interim steerage is for clinicians caring for sufferers with confirmed an infection with extreme acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes coronavirus illness 2019 (COVID-19). CDC will replace this interim steerage as extra data turns into accessible.
The incubation interval for COVID-19 is believed to increase to 14 days, with a median time of 4-5 days from publicity to signs onset.1-3 One research reported that 97.5% of individuals with COVID-19 who develop signs will achieve this inside 11.5 days of SARS-CoV-2 an infection.3
The indicators and signs of COVID-19 current at sickness onset range, however over the course of the illness, most individuals with COVID-19 will expertise the next1,4-9:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or problem respiratory
- Muscle or physique aches
- New lack of style or odor
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nostril
- Nausea or vomiting
Symptoms differ with severity of illness. For instance, fever, cough, and shortness of breath are extra generally reported amongst people who find themselves hospitalized with COVID-19 than amongst these with milder illness (non-hospitalized sufferers). Atypical shows happen typically, and older adults and individuals with medical comorbidities might have delayed presentation of fever and respiratory signs.10,14 In one research of 1,099 hospitalized sufferers, fever was current in solely 44% at hospital admission however finally developed in 89% throughout hospitalization.1 Fatigue, headache, and muscle aches (myalgia) are among the many mostly reported signs in people who find themselves not hospitalized, and sore throat and nasal congestion or runny nostril (rhinorrhea) additionally could also be outstanding signs. Many individuals with COVID-19 expertise gastrointestinal signs reminiscent of nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, typically previous to creating fever and decrease respiratory tract indicators and signs.9 Loss of odor (anosmia) or style (ageusia) previous the onset of respiratory signs has been generally reported in COVID-19 particularly amongst girls and younger or middle-aged sufferers who don’t require hospitalization.11,12 While most of the signs of COVID-19 are widespread to different respiratory or viral diseases, anosmia seems to be extra particular to COVID-19.12
Several research have reported that the indicators Signs and signs of COVID-19 in kids are just like adults range by age of the kid, and are normally milder in comparison with adults.15-19 For extra data on the scientific presentation and course amongst kids, see Information for Pediatric Healthcare Providers.
Asymptomatic and Pre-Symptomatic Infection
Several research have documented SARS-CoV-2 an infection in sufferers who by no means develop signs (asymptomatic) and in sufferers not but symptomatic (pre-symptomatic).16,18,20-30 Since asymptomatic individuals aren’t routinely examined, the prevalence of asymptomatic an infection and detection of pre-symptomatic an infection will not be but nicely understood. One research discovered that as many as 13% of reverse transcription-polymerase chain response (RT-PCR)-confirmed circumstances of SARS-CoV-2 an infection in kids have been asymptomatic.16 Another research of expert nursing facility residents who have been contaminated with SARS-CoV-2 after contact with a healthcare employee with COVID-19 demonstrated that half of the residents have been asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic on the time of contact tracing, analysis, and testing.27 Patients might have abnormalities on chest imaging earlier than the onset of signs.21,22.
Asymptomatic and Pre-Symptomatic Transmission
Increasing numbers of epidemiologic research have documented SARS-CoV-2 transmission throughout the pre-symptomatic incubation interval,21,31-33. Virologic research utilizing RT-PCR detection have reported checks with low cycle thresholds, indicating bigger portions of viral RNA and viable virus has been cultured from individuals with asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 an infection.25,27,30,34 The relationship between SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA shedding and transmission threat will not be but clear. The proportion of SARS-CoV-2 transmission on account of asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic an infection in comparison with symptomatic an infection is unclear.35
The largest cohort reported of >44,000 individuals with COVID-19 from China confirmed that sickness severity can vary from delicate to important:36
- Mild to reasonable (delicate signs as much as delicate pneumonia): 81%
- Severe (dyspnea, hypoxia, or >50% lung involvement on imaging): 14%
- Critical (respiratory failure, shock, or multiorgan system dysfunction): 5%
In this research, all deaths occurred amongst sufferers with important sickness, and the general case fatality charge was 2.3%.36 The case fatality charge amongst sufferers with important illness was 49%.36 Among kids in China, sickness severity was decrease with 94% having asymptomatic, delicate, or reasonable illness; 5% having extreme illness; and <1% having important illness.16 Among U.S. COVID-19 circumstances with identified disposition, the proportion of individuals who have been hospitalized was 19%.37 The proportion of individuals with COVID-19 admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) was 6%.37
Among sufferers who developed extreme illness, the medium time to dyspnea from the onset of sickness or signs ranged from 5 to eight days, the median time to acute respiratory misery syndrome (ARDS) from the onset of sickness or signs ranged from Eight to 12 days, and the median time to ICU admission from the onset of sickness or signs ranged from 10 to 12 days.5,6,10,11 Clinicians ought to concentrate on the potential for some sufferers to quickly deteriorate one week after sickness onset. Among all hospitalized sufferers, a spread of 26% to 32% of sufferers have been admitted to the ICU.6,8,11 Among all sufferers, a spread of three% to 17% developed ARDS in comparison with a spread of 20% to 42% for hospitalized sufferers and 67% to 85% for sufferers admitted to the ICU.1,4-6,8,11 Mortality amongst sufferers admitted to the ICU ranges from 39% to 72% relying on the research and traits of affected person inhabitants.5,8,10,11 The median size of hospitalization amongst survivors was 10 to 13 days.1,6,8
Risk Factors for Severe Illness
Age is a powerful threat issue for extreme sickness, issues, and loss of life.1,6,8,14,36-40 Among >44,000 confirmed circumstances of COVID-19 in China, the case fatality charge was highest amongst older individuals: ≥80 years, 14.8%; 70–79 years, 8.0%; 60–69 years, 3.6%; 50–59 years, 1.3%; 40–49 years, 0.4%; <40 years, 0.2%.36,41 In early U.S. epidemiologic knowledge, case fatality was highest in individuals aged ≥85 years (vary 10%–27%), adopted by these aged 65-84 years (3%–11%), aged 55-64 years (1%–3%), and aged <55 years (<1%).37
Patients in China with no reported underlying medical circumstances had an general case fatality of 0.9%. Case fatality was increased for sufferers with comorbidities: 10.5% for these with heart problems, 7.3% for these with diabetes, and roughly 6% for these with power respiratory illness, or most cancers.1,6,14,36,38,41,42 Prior stroke, diabetes, power lung illness, and power kidney illness have all been related to elevated sickness severity and antagonistic outcomes. Serious heart conditions, together with coronary heart failure, coronary artery illness, congenital coronary heart illness, cardiomyopathies, and pulmonary hypertension, might put individuals at increased threat for extreme sickness from COVID-19. People with hypertension could also be at an elevated threat for extreme sickness from COVID-19 and will proceed to take their medicines as prescribed. At this time, individuals whose solely underlying medical situation is hypertension aren’t thought-about to be at increased threat for extreme sickness from COVID-19.43,44
Accounting for variations in age and prevalence of underlying situation, mortality related to COVID-19 reported within the United States has been just like experiences from China.26,37,39
There aren’t any knowledge regarding the opportunity of re-infection with SARS-CoV-2 after restoration from COVID-19. While viral RNA shedding declines with decision of signs, it might proceed for days to weeks.34,38,45 However, the detection of RNA throughout convalescence doesn’t essentially point out the presence of viable infectious virus. Clinical an infection has been correlated with the detection of IgM and IgG antibodies.46-49 However, definitive knowledge are missing, and it stays unsure whether or not people with antibodies are protected towards reinfection with SARS-CoV-2, and in that case, what focus of antibodies is required to confer safety.
Diagnosis of COVID-19 requires detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA by reverse transcription polymerase chain response (RT-PCR). Detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA is healthier in nasopharynx samples in comparison with throat samples.34,50 Lower respiratory samples might have higher yield than higher respiratory samples.34,50 SARS-CoV-2 RNA has additionally been detected in stool and blood.15,45,47,51 Detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in blood could also be a marker of extreme sickness.52 Viral RNA shedding might persist over longer durations amongst older individuals and people who had extreme sickness requiring hospitalization (median vary of viral shedding amongst hospitalized sufferers 12–20 days).34,38,45,46,53
Infection with each SARS-CoV-2 and with different respiratory viruses has been reported, and detection of one other respiratory pathogen doesn’t rule out COVID-19.54

Laboratory and Radiographic Findings
Lymphopenia is the most typical laboratory discovering in COVID-19, and is present in as many as 83% of hospitalized sufferers.1,5 Lymphopenia, neutrophilia, elevated serum alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase ranges, elevated lactate dehydrogenase, excessive CRP, and excessive ferritin ranges could also be related to better sickness severity.1,5,6,8,38,55 Elevated D-dimer and lymphopenia have been related to mortality.8,38 Procalcitonin is often regular on admission, however might improve amongst these admitted to an ICU.4-6 Patients with important sickness had excessive plasma ranges of inflammatory makers, suggesting potential immune dysregulation.5,56
Chest radiographs of sufferers with COVID-19 usually display bilateral air-space consolidation, although sufferers might have unremarkable chest radiographs early within the illness.1,5,57 Chest CT photos from sufferers with COVID-19 usually display bilateral, peripheral floor glass opacities.4,8,36,58-67 Because this chest CT imaging sample is non-specific and overlaps with different infections, the diagnostic worth of chest CT imaging for COVID-19 could also be low and dependent upon radiographic interpretation.59,68 One research discovered that 56% of sufferers who offered inside two days of prognosis had a standard CT.60 Conversely, different research have recognized chest CT abnormalities in sufferers previous to the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA.58,69 Given the variability in chest imaging findings, chest radiograph or CT alone will not be advisable for the prognosis of COVID-19. The American College of Radiology additionally doesn’t advocate CT for screening, or as a first-line take a look at for prognosis of COVID-19. (See American College of Radiology Recommendationsexternal icon).
Clinical Management and Treatment
The National Institutes of Health printed pointers on prophylaxis use, testing, and administration of sufferers with COVID-19. For extra data, please go to National Institutes of Health: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Treatment Guidelinesexternal icon. The suggestions have been primarily based on scientific proof and skilled opinion and will probably be up to date as extra knowledge turn into accessible.
Mild to Moderate Disease
Patients with a gentle scientific presentation (absence of viral pneumonia and hypoxia) might not initially require hospitalization, and plenty of sufferers will have the ability to handle their sickness at house. The choice to watch a affected person within the inpatient or outpatient setting needs to be made on a case-by-case foundation. This choice will depend upon the scientific presentation, requirement for supportive care, potential threat components for extreme illness, and the flexibility of the affected person to self-isolate at house. Patients with threat components for extreme sickness (see People Who Are at Higher Risk for Severe Illness) needs to be monitored carefully given the attainable threat of development to extreme sickness, particularly within the second week after symptom onset.5,6,14,38
For data concerning an infection prevention and management suggestions, please see Interim Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Patients with Confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) or Persons Under Investigation for COVID-19 in Healthcare Settings.
Some sufferers with COVID-19 may have extreme illness requiring hospitalization for administration. Inpatient administration revolves across the supportive administration of the most typical issues of extreme COVID-19: pneumonia, hypoxemic respiratory failure/ARDS, sepsis and septic shock, cardiomyopathy and arrhythmia, acute kidney harm, and issues from extended hospitalization, together with secondary bacterial infections, thromboembolism, gastrointestinal bleeding, and demanding sickness polyneuropathy/myopathy.1,4-6,14,36,38,70-73
More data could be discovered at National Institutes of Health: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Treatment Guidelinesexternal icon and Healthcare Professionals: Frequently Asked Questions and Answers. Additional assets and steerage paperwork on the therapy and administration of COVID-19, together with inpatient administration of critically ailing sufferers, are supplied under.
Hypercoagulability and COVID-19
Some sufferers with COVID-19 might develop indicators of a hypercoagulable state and be at elevated threat for venous and arterial thrombosis of huge and small vessels.74,75 Laboratory abnormalities generally noticed amongst hospitalized sufferers with COVID-19-associated coagulopathy embrace:
- Mild thrombocytopenia
- Increased D-dimer ranges
- Increased fibrin degradation merchandise
- Prolonged prothrombin time
Elevated D-dimer ranges have been strongly related to better threat of loss of life.74,76-79
There are a number of experiences of hospitalized sufferers with thrombotic issues, most regularly deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.80-82 Other reported manifestations embrace:
- Microvascular thrombosis of the toes
- Clotting of catheters
- Myocardial harm with ST-segment elevation
- Large vessel strokes83-86
The pathogenesis for COVID-19-associated hypercoagulability stays unknown. However, hypoxia and systemic irritation secondary to COVID-19 might result in excessive ranges of inflammatory cytokines and activation of the coagulation pathway.
There are restricted knowledge accessible to tell scientific administration round prophylaxis or therapy of venous thromboembolism in COVID-19 sufferers.
Several nationwide skilled associations present assets for up-to-date data regarding COVID-19-associated hypercoagulability, together with administration of anticoagulation. This is a quickly evolving matter, with new data launched typically.
More data on hypercoagulability and COVID-19 is on the market from the American Society of Hematology external iconand National Institutes of Health: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Treatment Guidelines – Antithrombotic Therapy in Patients with COVID-19external icon.
Illness amongst pediatric sufferers with COVID-19 is often milder than amongst adults. Most kids current with signs of higher respiratory an infection. However, extreme outcomes have been reported in kids, together with deaths. Data recommend that infants (<12 months of age) could also be at increased threat for extreme sickness from COVID-19 in contrast with older kids.16 CDC and companions are additionally investigating experiences of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) related to COVID-19.
For expanded steerage on the administration of kids with COVID-19 and related issues, see Evaluation and Management Considerations for Neonates At Risk for COVID-19, Information for Pediatric Healthcare Providers, and the Surviving Sepsis Campaign International Guidelines for the Management of Septic Shock and Sepsis-Associated Organ Dysfunction in Childrenexternal icon.
The National Institutes of Health have printed interim guidelines for the medical management of COVID-19external icon which embrace data on therapeutic choices for COVID-19 at the moment underneath investigation. No U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medication have demonstrated security and efficacy in randomized managed trials when used to deal with sufferers with COVID-19, though FDA has granted an Emergency Use Authorization for the use of remdesivirexternal icon to deal with extreme circumstances. Use of investigational therapies for therapy of COVID-19 ought to ideally be performed within the context of enrollment in randomized managed trials, in order that useful medication could be recognized. For the most recent data, see Information for Clinicians on Therapeutic Options for COVID-19 Patients. For data on registered trials within the United States, see ClinicalTrials.govexternal icon.
Discontinuation of Transmission-Based Precautions or Home Isolation
Patients who’ve clinically recovered and are capable of discharge from the hospital, however who haven’t been cleared from their Transmission-Based Precautions, might proceed isolation at their place of residence till cleared.
