I had to have a Covid-19 test for my recent colonoscopy (but not my MRI scan, which I found weird). That was negative, thank god, as the last thing I wanted to do was isolate for 14 days. I don't want to get Covid, as I do think with my history of autoimmune disease, I'd have a rough ride with it. On the other hand, I'm so tired and bored of the whole thing, I find it hard to be that scared of it anymore. To be honest, I'm more scared of food and medicine shortages in my country come January. The government can't handle Covid; it sure as heck won't handle another major crisis on top of that one.
Anyway, Paul listed all the main symptoms of Covid. The most common two are a fever (38C or higher) and a dry cough. GI symptoms are possible but rare - the virus has to enter the GI tract which it mostly doesn't do.
