Symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are similar to a range of other illnesses such as influenza. Having any of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you have COVID-19.
- sore throat
- difficulty breathing.
Difficulty breathing is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention.
We don’t yet know how long symptoms take to show after a person has been infected, but current World Health Organization assessments suggest that it is 2–10 days.
If you have these symptoms and have recently been to a country or area of concern, or have been in close contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19, please DO NOT COME TO THE CLINIC, stay home and telephone the Coronavirus Healthline (for free) on 0800 358 5453 or your doctor immediately.
