Have I got Coronavirus?
The main symptoms associated with Coronavirus 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)
There has also been some claims that a lack of taste and smell are associated, although the NHS has not included these as common symptoms.
If you are experiencing symptoms, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.
