What are the symptoms of Covid-19?

  • a new or worsening cough

  • sneezing and runny nose

  • a fever

  • temporary loss of smell or altered sense of taste

  • sore throat

  • shortness of breath

  • fatigue/feeling of tiredness.

Less common symptoms may include:

  • nausea

  • vomiting

  • malaise — a general feeling of discomfort, illness or unease

  • chest pain

What are the treatment options?


Most people with COVID-19 — especially if they are fully vaccinated and boosted — are likely to have a mild to moderate illness and will be fine to recover at home.


Symptoms for COVID-19 tend to show 2 to 5 days after a person has been infected but can take up to 14 days. Omicron causes similar symptoms to other variants.


If you have COVID-19 symptoms as well as have high-risk medical conditions or at an eligible age, you may be able to qualify for COVID-19 antiviral medicines nirmatrelvir with ritonavir (Paxlovid™) or molnupiravir (Lagevrio®).
