Health conditions and health care


Coronaviruses are common around the world, and there are many different types. COVID-19 is the name of the disease caused by a new coronavirus that was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan City, China.

The most typical symptoms include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Loss of taste and smell have also been identified as a symptom.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, isolate yourself and get tested

Older people, males, and those with underlying health conditions are known to be at greater risk of poor health outcomes related to COVID-19. Analysis by Public Health England and the Office for National Statistics has also identified a number of other groups, including certain ethnic minorities.
