The CDC added nausea, runny nose or congestion, and diarrhea to its list of coronavirus symptoms.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recently added three new coronavirus symptoms to their list. These include nausea, runny nose or congestion, and diarrhea, according to a report by Newsweek.

Symptoms already present on the list were coughing, fever, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, and sore throat.

"This list does not include all possible symptoms," read the CDC website.

States have started to phase into reopening so as to both slow the spread of the virus and to help the economy.

However, cases have continued to rise. In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott was pushed to halt his reopening plan after a surge of new cases. While Gov. Abbott did not take back any of his previous openings, he did put a stop to new ones, such as elective surgeries, which he has prohibited for now as an attempt to leave more hospital capacity for COVID-19 patients.

"We are focused on strategies that slow the spread of the virus while also allowing Texans to continue earning a paycheck to support their families," Abbott said. "The last thing we want to do as a state is go backwards and close down businesses. This temporary pause will help our state corral the spread until we can safely enter the next phase of opening our state for business."

The U.S. currently has the most reported cases of coronavirus at over 2,500,000. President Trump attributed the high number of cases to the high rate of testing that the U.S. is doing.
