The CDC warns: “Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.”

Five emergency warning signs for COVID-19 are also listed on the website and anyone showing the symptoms are urged to seek immediate medical care.

The warning signs to be aware of include: trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, and bluish lips or face.
