***Wuhan Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) Advice - Updated 15.03.20***
Wuhan novel coronavirus (WN-CoV) is a new respiratory illness that has not previously been seen in humans.The risk of getting the illness in the UK is low. When a case in the UK, health professionals will aim to contact anyone who has been in close contact with the infected person. If you have not been contacted, be reassured you are extremely unlikely to catch Wuhan novel coronavirus.
Revised national advice states that you should stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days if you have either:
a high temperature over 37.8'C
AND / OR
a new persistent cough
Please do not attend the Surgery, pharmacy or a hospital if you have these symptoms. The NHS will not be testing those self-isolating with mild symptoms. The only people who will be tested are those who need admission to hospital.
However, if you become very poorly, you should contact NHS111 and describe your symptoms. Coronavirus symptoms include: feeling tired, difficulty breathing, a high temperature and a cough.
