you still have a fever after seven days, you must stay in self-isolation. Continue to check the Patient Access Coronavirus symptom checker regularly for warning signs to look out for. In people with more severe infection, shortness of breath is likely to become more marked 7-10 days after they develop symptoms.

Nothing is fix patteren from 24 hrs to 7th day may be interrupted or continuous Depends on stages of infection

In covid 19 fever will be remain up to 2nd week roughly 10 to 12 days in some patient & it will be continuous. This symptoms also depends how much continuous remain in contact of covid 19 positive patient

I am agree with Dr Shivraj Agarwal Sir, and Dr. Krishnan Pichumani Sir.
