Coronavirus symptoms update: How to treat your COVID-19 symptoms at home

Things to try if you’re feeling breathless

If you’re feeling breathless, it can help to keep your room cool.

Try turning the heating down or opening a window. Do not use a fan as it may spread the virus.

It’s also been suggested to try:

Breathing slowly in through your nose and out through your mouth, with your lips together like you’re gently blowing out a candle

Sitting upright in a chair

Relaxing your shoulders, so you’re not hunched

Leaning forward slightly – support yourself by putting your hands on your knees or on something stable like a chair

Try not to panic if you’re feeling breathless. This can make it worse.
