'There is a way we could identify more patients who have Covid pneumonia sooner and treat them more effectively — and it would not require waiting for a coronavirus test at a hospital or doctor’s office. It requires detecting silent hypoxia early through a common medical device that can be purchased without a prescription at most pharmacies: a pulse oximeter.'

This is just the start of a long article in the NYT by a covid-19 Doctor, he's basically saying a reduction in blood oxygen levels is the FIRST sign people will have if infected by the coronavirus. Normal levels are 90-100, he stated if your level drop's below normal, GO IMMEDIATELY to your doctor/hospital. Catching the disease in the early stages promotes faster recovery.
