The organisation suggests that symptoms may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus and that anyone can have mild to severe symptoms.
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, a headache or sore throat, congestion or runny nose and nausea or vomiting, are also signs.
The NHS says that you should self-isolate “straight away” and get a PCR test if you have any of the following symptoms of COVID-19, “even if they are mild”.
The health body notes: “Self-isolate even if you’ve had a positive test result for COVID-19 before. You probably have some immunity to the virus but it’s not clear how long it lasts.”
