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
  • fever
  • 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.
