Sorry to hear about this

These can be symptoms of Corona virus infection

You must stay isolated till the symptoms recover

There is a fair chance that you can spread it to others if they come in contact with you

So in best interest of you and other,s around you,you must stay isolated

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Smell or taste anything* also have slight hot and cold flushes once in a while.I cannot self isolated correctly as I live in a shared house with 6 other people who often go and sit in public. What do I do, I haven't been tested for the virus yet also.

You can stay at home and minimize contact

You can call 111 to ask about testing

Use face mask and precautionary measures as advised by NHS

Please do let me know if you have any other question
