    Are there any warning signs at all during the incubation period? Do you even feel slightly under the weather or do symptoms just come on one day?

    Some people have no symtoms at all, none, even when fully infected.

    Only way to find out is to be tested.

    PCR "testing" is by no means accurate. If you have no symptoms, you are not a case. That is the traditional medical view.

    There's so much weird symptoms with this virus. It's not just coughing, fever, shortness of breath. So someone can easily ignore something as not covid.
