COVID-19: Classic coronavirus symptoms 'changing' as expert urges government to update list

Professor Spector also says he believes the current wave of infections should peak within two weeks.

A leading COVID-19 symptoms researcher has called on the government to update the list of "classic" symptoms of the virus.

Professor Tim Spector, co-founder of the ZOE COVID symptom study, said recent data showed headache, runny nose, sore throat and sneezing were now the most common signs of coronavirus.

The study records the symptoms of people who have received a positive PCR test.

We shouldn't make light of it, AKH. Clinical studies show that this condition can be fatal for those over the age of 97.

Senora O'Blene has completely lost her appetite, and this has started about six weeks after her second jab!

I blame the Labour party.

"headache, runny nose, . . . . and sneezing were now the most common signs of coronavirus"

Yet, strangely, we were told last year that they weren't. That sneaky virus is morphing to suit the "government's" requirements . . .

Sam - and we no longer speak of "the old man's friend".

Scrobs - I'm sure you are right, Labour has been making me feel queasy for years now.

Jannie - that could be another symptom soon. If you remember what the government said last year you must be ill and in need of an injection...
