What are the symptoms of Covid-19?
Symptoms can include one or more of the following:
a new or worsening cough
sneezing and runny nose
temporary loss of smell or altered sense of taste
shortness of breath
fatigue/feeling of tiredness.
Less common symptoms may include:
muscle pain or body aches

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®).
