With coronavirus making headlines around the world, here are some useful facts to keep yourself safe and healthy.
What is coronavirus?
Coronavirus, now also called Covid-19, affects the respiratory system causing coughing and fever. Symptoms can be very mild, such as a minor cough, or you can have flu-like symptoms. This can progress to pneumonia with shortness of breath and breathing problems.
The outbreak started in Wuhan, China and coronavirus has not been seen in humans before.
How do you know if you have coronavirus?
Having a cough, high temperature and shortness of breath does not necessarily mean you have coronavirus.
Many other much more common illnesses, such as colds and flu, have similar symptoms.
If you think you’ve been exposed and experience symptoms, you should contact NHS online 111 and follow their advice.
