Chills: Tremors alone are not a commonly recognized symptom of Covid-19, however if you have a high fever and chills, the chills can be pretty severe (rigors) just like when you get a severe flu. Anytime there is high fever and chills there is usually shaking along with the chills. During an infection, the hypothalamus resets the body's core temperature setpoint to a higher degree, so you feel cold.
