In brief: Not frm virus itself

The virus itself doesn't cause discomfort or pain, but rather it is how our body responds to the virus (inflammation of the respiratory tract leading to secretions and respiratory congestion), and the tests we need to perform that will typically cause pain (phlebotomy, bronchoscopy, intubation, central line insertions, foley catheterizations, etc).

In brief: Not usually

Severe acute respiratory syndrome is a viral illness due to a coronavirus.
It generally produces gastrointestinal symptoms and malaise, and many cases are subclinical. Pain is not described as a prominent manifestation in the articles on this disease, but never having recognized a case i cannot guarantee that some persons have experienced pain with this infection.
