Although there are a number of common symptoms associated with Covid-19, a recent study by University College London revealed that 86 percent of people who tested positive for coronavirus did not have virus symptoms such as fever, cough or loss of taste or smell.
If you have Covid-19, but do not have symptoms, it’s still important that you self-isolate. People who are asymptomatic are still contagious and are at risk of passing the virus on to others who may develop symptoms themselves. This is particularly dangerous for the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. If you think you have been exposed to the virus, it’s important to self-isolate, until you receive a test result that confirms whether you have coronavirus, to help protect others.
