Coronavirus – the symptoms and what you should do

The following information is provided so that you know about the symptoms of the virus and provides details of some common sense measures you can take.

The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • A cough
  • A high temperature
  • Shortness of breath

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness, and are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu. The virus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease. The good news is that viruses like Coronavirus cannot live outside the body for long.
