If you experience a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing health officials say you may want to see a doctor as they are symptoms of COVID19. 

Not being able to taste or smell that delicious meal might be another sign to see a doctor.

A statement released by health officials in the U.S and Britain over the weekend say in China some of those patients who tested positive experienced a loss of smell and taste despite not showing any other symptoms.

Experts say in South Korea, 30-per-cent of patients who tested positive for COVID19 experienced a loss of smell.
