  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • loss of smell and taste

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
