What is coronavirus?

The NHS will contact you from Monday 23 March 2020 if you are at particularly high risk of getting seriously ill with coronavirus. You’ll be given advice about what to do.

Do not contact your GP at this stage.

COVID-19 or coronavirus is a new illness that has infected many people around the world. 

An easy read guide to coronavirus is available here, produced by inclusion north

If you have it, you may have a fever (high temperature) and a cough. In some cases this can get worse and become severe pneumonia (a chest infection) causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. 

If you have a long term health condition, are older, or have a weakened immune system, coronavirus can be much more serious.
