The main symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
• a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
• a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
• a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or have been in close contact with/travel from a high-risk region/living with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 in the previous 2 weeks get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.
