Coronavirus: 1 in 5 Britons ‘not self-isolating’ – what symptoms require you to do so?

Coronavirus: 1 in 5 Britons ‘not self-isolating’ – what symptoms require you to do so?

If anybody still has a fever after seven days of infection, then self-isolation is still required until the fever subsides and returns to normal.

For those living with anybody who has symptoms of COVID-19, you must immediately self-isolate for 14 days.

This is because the incubation period for the virus to develop symptoms can take up to 14 days, and this measure helps to ensure the household isn’t spreading the disease.

Additionally, some people are asymptotic, meaning they show no signs of infection but actually are carrying the disease and can pass it on to others.
