Symptoms of coronavirus are a cough, high temperature and shortness of breath, although any or all of these does not necessarily mean that you have the illness. As indicated above, if you have of these symptoms you are required to self-isolate for seven days. If your condition deteriorates, dial 111 to use the NHS Coronavirus service.
