10 Ways to Tell One of Your Friends Has Coronavirus (But Isn’t Telling You)

Coronavirus has become a household name by now. The disease otherwise known as COVID-19 has spread across the globe and infected over 100,000 and killed over 5,000. There’s not only a test for coronavirus, but some facilities, like the Mayo Clinic, are getting creative about administering it (in a drive-thru). But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a stigma surrounding those who have the virus (or suspect they might). Even though you think you know your friends through and through, it’s possible that you have someone in your social circle right now who’s infected but is too ashamed to share that with you – and in this case, what you don’t know could kill you. We’re breaking down 10 ways to tell if one of your friends has coronavirus – but isn’t telling you.
