Typical symptoms include fever, loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste (anosmia) or a new, continuous cough. In some cases infection can cause serious symptoms, including pneumonia or difficulty breathing, which might require admission to hospital.

Some people with COVID-19 may not have symptoms of the virus or they can be so mild or unusual that they are not recognised as COVID-19, even though they are infected and are infectious to others.

Generally, coronavirus causes more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease. Those who are unvaccinated are also at risk of developing more serious symptoms and being hospitalised.
