Most people with COVID-19 develop cold and flu-like symptoms that can last up to two weeks.
Most symptoms can be managed with:
Continue to take any regular medication. Some people will be prescribed medication to reduce their chance of needing hospital level care.
It is important to track your symptoms every day in case you become more unwell and need urgent medical care.
If you have difficulties breathing or feel faint or dizzy at any stage, call 111 immediately. Tell them you have COVID-19 when you ring.
If you are isolating at home and feel you are getting more unwell, call the COVID Healthline on 0800 358 5453 or City GPs on 04 381 6161.
Most people will recover within two weeks but others may have persistent symptoms for months.
