Hello -

 

If you have a fever with those symptoms, then that could be a concern.

 

The symptoms of the COVID-19:

The classic features for COVID-19 (coronavirus):

 

88-99% fever

38-70% fatigue

59-67% dry cough

40% loss of appetite

14-35% muscle aches

18-31% trouble breathing

27-33% increased phlegm/sputum

14% sore throat

5% vomiting

4% diarrhea

 

HOWEVER -- some patients have minimal symptoms which can mimic the regular cold or flu (sore throat, diarrhea, runny nose, a low grade fever only)

 

Please read the USA CDC website for the latest clinical information:

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.html

 

 

The NHS guidelines ask that you self-isolate for 7 days if you have 1) a fever or 2) a new continuous cough. DO NOT go to your doctor or hospital to get this evaluated UNLESS you have significant difficulty breathing.

 

If you are over 70 -- staying at home (self isolation) is the best option for now to reduce your potential exposure to the coronavirus.

 

 

Self isolation:

  • Try and keep two metres / six feet (three steps) away from other people in your home - especially older people or those with long-term health conditions
  • Ask friends and family and delivery services to deliver food and medicine - but avoid contact with them
  • Sleep alone if possible
  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds on a regular basis
  • Try to stay away from older people and those with long term health conditions
  • Drink lots of water and take everyday painkillers - like paracetamol/acetaminophen- to deal with your symptoms
  • Not have visitors and ask people to leave deliveries outside
  • Not leave the house - including going for a walk or to schools or any public places

Basically -- if you feel sick -- you should try and self-isolate and monitor your symptoms here.
