A diagram has been developed by Dr Siouxsie Wiles to assist you when considering symptoms. What it tells us is:
• A dry cough and a high temperature are common to both flu and COVID-19.
• Sneezing is not a symptom of COVID-19. However if someone has COVID-19, then sneezing can spread droplets containing the virus.
