A general rule of infection warning and sputum production is that the colour will go from dark green in the early stages of an infection and will gradually lighten as the infection improves.

WHO’s report on coronavirus said: “Symptoms of COVID-19 are non-specific, and the disease presentation can range from no symptoms (asymptomatic) to severe pneumonia and death.

“As of 20 February 2020 and based on 55924 laboratory confirmed cases, typical signs and symptoms include: fever (87.9 percent), dry cough (67.7 percent), fatigue (38.1 percent), shortness of breath (18.6 percent), sore throat (13.9 percent), headache (13.6 percent), myalgia or arthralgia (14.8 percent), chills (11.4 percent), nausea or vomiting (5.0 percent), nasal congestion (4.8 percent), diarrhoea (3.7 percent), and haemoptysis (0.9 percent), and conjunctival congestion (0.8 percent).”

There is another symptom discovered in 33.4 percent of cases and is a production of sputum.

Sputum is produced when a person’s lungs are diseased or damaged. Sputum is not saliva but the thick mucus, sometimes known as phlegm which is coughed up from the lungs.

The body produces mucus to help keep the thin, delicate tissues of the respiratory tract moist so that small particles of foreign matter that may pose a threat can be trapped and forced out.

Sputum that is a different colour form the normal colour of your saliva is a major sign of a respiratory tract infection.

With bacterial respiratory tract infections, sputum may also have a thick consistency and an unpleasant odour.

A general rule of infection warning and sputum production is that the colour will go from dark green in the early stages of an infection and will gradually lighten as the infection improves.
