Coronavirus symptoms: The full list of COVID-19 signs you need to watch out for

The three classic warning signs of coronavirus, as pointed out by the NHS, are: a new, continuous cough, a high temperature, or a change or loss to your sense of smell or taste. However, there’s more.

You will need one of these three symptoms mentioned above to qualify for a free NHS coronavirus test in the UK.

Exceptions do occur, for the following reasons:

  • Your local council has asked you to do so
  • You’ve been invited to take part in the ‘visiting professional’ pilot
  • You’ve been asked by a contact tracer to test for the virus

At present, the test works best when you’re in the first five days of displaying symptoms.
