According to Dr. Vijay Kumar, Assistant Professor, Geriatric Department, All India Institute Of Medical Science (AIIMS), those who are assisting the seniors must watch out for some common symptoms in them like fever, fatigue, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle aches and pains, headache, chills, loss of taste or smell. They may even report gastrointestinal symptoms, like diarrhoea, he said. In case of any of these symptoms seniors must be provided medical help. However, he stresses that they should not be taken to the doctor's office or the emergency room straight away as they may catch the virus there if they haven't already. He suggests, calling the doctor for advice on what to do and where to get tested.
