Symptoms of coronavirus

The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • A dry cough
  • A high temperature

But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus

Do

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Don't

  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
  • Check if you need medical help

You should use the NHS 111’s online coronavirus service if you need medical help. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Call 111 if you need to speak to someone. Use this service if:

  • You feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
