Coronavirus is an infectious disease that has been confirmed in more than nine and a half million people worldwide. You could be at risk of contracting the virus if you develop a high fever or a continuous new cough, it has been confirmed.
The UK shutdown is slowly easing as shoppers are now allowed to explore the main street in England as long as they remain socially aloof.
You can also visit someone else’s garden, as long as the person you are visiting is not protecting, and there are no more than six people in the garden at one time.
But the government has still advised the public to stay indoors as long as possible, in a bid to curb the spread of the virus.
You should isolate yourself at home if you have any of the two “classic” symptoms of coronavirus, including cough and fever.

“This analysis confirms that cough and fever were the most common symptoms in people who tested positive for COVID-19,” said Ryckie Wade, a clinical researcher at the Leeds Medical Research Institute.
“This is important because it ensures that symptomatic people can be quarantined, so they are not infecting others.”
“The study gives confidence that we have been correct in identifying the main symptoms and can help determine who should be tested.”
The researchers also recognized that there are likely to be several people who have coronaviruses, but who do not have any symptoms.
In the UK, the public has been urged to isolate themselves if they have any of the three main symptoms of coronavirus.
They include a high temperature, a new cough, or a loss or change in your sense of smell or taste.
Most people have at least one of these key warning signs, the NHS said.
If you develop any of the three symptoms, you are encouraged to be tested for the infection as soon as possible, along with anyone else you live with or are in a support bubble with.
