As the health site explains, a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature).
A new, continuous cough is characterised coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours.
Ongoing research suggests the above does not cover the list of potential symptoms, however.
For example, a lesser-known warning sign is loss of smell, according to the British Rhinological Society.
There is already good evidence from South Korea, China and Italy that significant numbers of patients with proven COVID-19 infection have developed a loss of smell, says the health body.
