Could my mom have the corona virus?

She came home from work last night barely able to breathe because her nose was so stuffed and her whole body was aching and she had a headache. 

I know that the corona virus is a stretch but I’m getting scared lol

Update:

She’s doing a bit better now, I think it’s just a cold

    The corona virus is prevalent in China. There has been only one case of corona virus reported in the US; and that was a traveler who was returning to the US from China.

    More than likely, you mom has a case of the flu. Even if she has a corona virus, don't worry.  A corona virus is usually no worse than a case of the flu or a very bad cold, and it can be treated with OTC cold and flu medicines.

      Ding Dong:  It has killed 65 people in China (but  flu & colds have  killed many  more than that in China). We're not in China). Ask your doctor to explain what a common and insignificant illness a coronavirus is for most people.

    Has she been to China? Why would she be the only person in your country to get it?

    Have you got any common sense?

  • Has she recently been to Wuhan or been in contact with someone who has?

    Yes - see a doctor

    No - she has a cold.

      It is incurable, just because some people have survived it there isn't a cure as such, many haven't survived it and nobody has been cured, there is a difference to survival and a cure.

    Coronavirus is something to be fearful of, catch it and you rollover dead, two days later.

      That's not true at all. A cold is a type of corona virus.
