The three classic warning signs of coronavirus, as pointed out by the NHS, are: a new, continuous cough, a high temperature, or a change or loss to your sense of smell or taste. However, there’s more.
You will need one of these three symptoms mentioned above to qualify for a free NHS coronavirus test in the UK.
Exceptions do occur, for the following reasons:
- Your local council has asked you to do so
- You’ve been invited to take part in the ‘visiting professional’ pilot
- You’ve been asked by a contact tracer to test for the virus
At present, the test works best when you’re in the first five days of displaying symptoms.
