COVID-19 symptoms

List of symptoms

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 you should stay at home as much as possible and book a COVID-19 test, especially if you have a positive LFT test.

Symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) in adults can include:

  • sore throat
  • runny or blocked nose
  • sneezing
  • a new, continuous or persistent cough (this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours)
  • a headache
  • a high temperature or shivering (chills) (a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back. You do not need to measure your temperature)
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • sudden confusion (delirium)
  • a skin rash
  • changes in the mouth or tongue
  • red and sore fingers or toes
  • shortness of breath
  • chest pains
  • muscle pains
  • diarrhoea
  • loss of appetite
  • abdominal pains

Book a COVID-19 test if you have symptoms

The symptoms listed are from both NHS and the ZOE Health Study.

Ongoing symptoms or long COVID

Most people infected with COVID-19 will experience a mild to moderate viral illness with respiratory symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment. However, for some people, COVID-19 can cause symptoms that last more than 4 weeks or months after the infection has gone. This is sometimes called post-COVID-19 syndrome or long COVID.
