CORONAVIRUS symptoms are mainly respiratory-related, such as a cough or a high temperature, according to the NHS. However, there are two additional sets of symptoms that may appear in other areas of the body.
Coronavirus has been met with a string of countermeasures since it first arrived in the UK in late January.
The lockdown, which has just been extended to May 7, has been the government’s most decisive measure to date, and evidence suggests it is bearing fruit. The fatality rate in the UK appears to be dropping, with England recording its lowest daily death count today (405) since the beginning of April.
Despite the green shoots, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is resisting calls to relax the lockdown measures, for fear that a second wave of infection could strike if the UK acts prematurely.
The same can be said for staying alert to the warning signs of the virus.
