However, these tests wouldn't change any of Coronavirus’s symptoms, as they often leave the human body in a couple of days. But if it travels down to your lower respiratory system (windpipe and lungs), it may cause pneumonia, particularly in aged people, people having a weaker immune system or people dealing with heart diseases.
