Coronavirus advice – advice and updates for the public

The Government and NHS have issued advice for members of the public following the confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK.

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China.

Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.

The latest information about the virus, as well as symptoms and advice, is available to view here at the Gov UK website.
