Novel Coronavirus – advice for patients
Please do not attend your GP surgery, community pharmacy or A&E department if you have any symptoms of Novel Coronavirus to stop the spread of infection.
The latest advice is to self-isolate for 5 days if you have a new continuous cough or high temperature. The 4 UK Chief Medical Officers confirmed the loss or change in smell or taste (anosmia) has been added to the list of symptoms of coronavirus.
If you are worried about symptoms of Coronavirus you should use the NHS Direct Wales online symptom checker at https://www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk/
You can help stop the spread of Novel Coronavirus by ensuring you practice good hygiene. Cough and sneeze into a tissue, bin it and immediately wash your hands with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds.
**Everyone over the age of 5 in Wales with symptoms can book a coronavirus test.**
Anyone experiencing the coronavirus symptoms will be able to apply for a home testing kit using the new UK online portal. For further information and a link to the booking website, visit: www.gov.wales/coronavirus or www.llyw.cymru/coronafeirws. This will be supported by a national 119 phone service, through which people can also order a home test.
