Coronavirus is an infectious disease that has been confirmed in more than six million people across the world. You could be at risk of the infection if you develop any of these 11 warning signs of COVID-19.
The UK has officially passed the peak of the coronavirus infection.
The UK government has advised the public to remain indoors in an attempt to curb the spread of the infection.
Despite nearing the final stretch of the COVID-19 outbreak, hundreds of people are still dying in the UK everyday.
You should consider self-isolating if you have any of these 11 coronavirus symptoms.
You could also be at risk of coronavirus if you have a sore throat, a congested nose, nausea, or diarrhoea.
“People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness,” said the CDC.
“Symptoms may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. This list does not include all possible symptoms.
“Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.”
In the UK, you’re only required to self-isolate if you develop a fever, a new cough, or a loss of smell or taste.
Stay at home for at least seven days if you live alone, and develop any of these three symptoms.
If you live with other people, you should self-isolate with your household for two weeks.
Even if you don’t have symptoms, you should try and stay home as much as possible.
The government has advised everyone to remain at home to avoid spreading the infection.
You should only be leaving the house for essential work, for exercise, or to collect food or medicine shopping.
More than 279,000 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the UK.
Of those patients, almost 40,000 people have sadly died from COVID-19.
