Available information suggests that the virus can cause symptoms similar to those caused by a mild case of flu, as well as more severe symptoms.
The disease can also progress over time in the same patient.
Patients with chronic pre-existing conditions such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, liver disease and respiratory disease, as well as the elderly, appear to be more likely to develop severe forms of COVID-19.
