What are the symptoms of COVID-19? What should I do?
Common symptoms of COVID-19 are like those found with illnesses such as a cold or influenza. They include:
- new or worsening cough
- sneezing and runny nose
- temporary loss of smell or altered sense of taste
- sore throat
- shortness of breath
- fatigue/feeling of tiredness.
Less common symptoms of COVID-19 may include diarrhoea, headache, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, malaise, chest pain, abdominal pain, joint pain or confusion/irritability.
These almost always occur with one or more of the common symptoms.
If you have any symptoms that could be COVID-19, please stay at home, contact Niue Foou Hospital and get a PCR test. The Drive-Thru at Niue Foou Hospital is normally open Monday to Saturday 9 am to 12 pm.
