If certain precautionary measures hadn’t been taken, we would have lost so many more than we could ever imagine. And so, to tackle a situation like this where there was a fear of the unknown, better be called fear of the less known, the need was to form corona testing centers. Here we will discuss the corona testing centers in the Netherlands.

Symptoms of coronavirus

Corona does not happen overtime. It starts with a mild fever that rises up to 38 degrees centigrade and then more. With increasing temperature, body pain starts and the person is bedridden. Dry cough, fatigue, coughed up sticky mucus, stuffy nose and shortness of breath follow temperature. When it gets worse, it can also damage other parts of the body such as the kidneys which happens to only 1 percent of people and these are the people who die because of coronavirus.
