The UK Health Security Agency has added nine symptoms to its list of symptoms that could indicate a COVID-19 infection, according to the BBC.
New symptoms include shortness of breath, unexplained fatigue or lack of energy, muscle aches, long headaches, neck pain, runny nose, lack of food, illness disease and illness.
Previously, the office list had three symptoms: chronic illness, fever, and loss of taste or taste. The WHO and some countries, such as the US, have used a long list of symptoms for some time, the BBC reported.
However, UK health officials have debated the evidence to identify the need for a COVID-19 test. Previously, people were only eligible for a lab -related test if they had one of the three symptoms or were invited to try, according to The Guardian. The free trial ended for most people in England last week.
The new guidance notes the symptoms of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses such as the common cold and respiratory illness are “very similar.”
“It’s not possible to tell if you have COVID-19, the disease or any other respiratory illness based on symptoms only,” the guide said. “Most people with COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses will have a mild illness, even if they have been diagnosed.”
The UK leadership encourages people with symptoms of asthma and high fever to stay home and avoid others, even if they don’t “feel good about going to work and doing chores. normal practice. “
People can return to their normal activities when the temperature is better or higher, according to a new NHS guide, which also includes nine symptoms. The leadership is expected to be reviewed on April 15.
