Coronavirus appears to be losing ground, with the UK announcing 350 deaths today – the lowest daily death count since March 30. The drop is encouraging, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson made clear in a speech earlier today that the public must still abide by the lockdown measures. A key part of this adherence is to watch out for the warning signs.
The health site now states the following as COVID symptoms:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
What should I do if I spot mild symptoms?
According to the NHS, to protect others, you must stay at home if you or someone you live with has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).
This social distancing policy is called self-isolation.
Are there any permissible reasons to leave the house while self-isolating?
The NHS says you should not leave your home for any reason – if you need food or medicine, order it online or by phone, or ask someone to deliver it to your home.
UK public health advice also says to avoid having visitors in your home – including friends and family.
