Coronavirus (COVID-19) is the illness caused by a strain of coronavirus. It can cause a new continuous cough, fever or loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste. Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people and those with long term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease. This is a rapidly changing situation which is being monitored carefully.
To find out about symptoms, when you can use self-care, and what to do if your condition worsens and you need medical help please look at the latest guidelines on NHS Inform Scotland or phone 111.
