Coronavirus: NHS to build new Nightingale hospitals – when to go to hospital with COVID-19

Coronavirus: NHS to build new Nightingale hospitals – when to go to hospital with COVID-19

The most common COVID-19 symptoms include a high fever, and a new, continuous cough.

Some patients have also reported diarrhoea, as well as losing their sense of smell and taste.

But, coronavirus can cause breathing difficulties in some individuals, the NHS warned.

You should phone 999 for an ambulance straight away if you’re struggling to breath.

That includes being so breathless that you struggle to speak more than a few words, or if you’re breathing harder or faster than normal, and it’s getting increasingly worse.

Otherwise, you should phone NHS 111 for medical help if you’re struggling to manage your symptoms.

The phone lines will be busy, but it’s still worth speaking to a medical professional if you’re worried.
