The ‘top’ three symptoms of coronavirus now being reported – ‘spread the word’

Coronavirus has found a formidable foe in the vaccines that are currently deployed against it – the odds of ending up in hospital with a severe form of the disease are much slimmer now thanks to the two-shot regimen. However, it is still possible to catch coronavirus if you are jabbed and the symptoms can be unpleasant. Unfortunately, public health messaging does not adequately reflect what’s happening on the ground, according to Tim Spector OBE, lead scientist on the ZOE COVID Study app and Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London.

He continued: “It seems unlikely that the government is going to change the official list anytime soon, so we are calling on people to spread the word.”

Professor Spector advises getting a lateral flow test if you feel ill and if you test positive, confirm it with a PCR test.

“It’s simple, if you feel ill, take a test. Let’s all try to do our bit to keep our freedom without unnecessarily condemning thousands more young people to Long Covid.”

According to the NHS, you and anyone you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.

The threat of long Covid

Coronavirus may be steadily in retreat but cases of Long Covid appear to be proliferating at an alarming rate.

This is calculated by using the estimated number of daily new cases from ZOE and the rates of Long Covid from the latest research on risk factors for Long Covid and adjusting for age differences.

The latest survey figures were based on data from 9,146 recent swab tests done between June 19 and July 4, 2021.

The data excludes lateral flow tests.

“Contact a GP if you’re worried about symptoms four weeks or more after having COVID-19,” explains the NHS.

According to the health body, your doctor will ask about your symptoms and the impact they’re having on your life.

“They may suggest some tests to find out more about your symptoms and rule out other things that could be causing them.”

These might include:

  • Blood tests
  • Checking your blood pressure and heart rate
  • A chest X-ray.
