Coronavirus/COVID-19 Advice for parents and carers

Colds, flu and Covid-19 are caused by different viruses, but can have similar symptoms.  It can be hard to judge which one you may have.

Most people who feel ill with coronavirus will have at least one of the key symptoms:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste

So what do you need to know about other things you may catch in the coming months?

The bbc.co.uk website has a page of information including a video to help people distinguish the differences between a common cold, flu and Covid-19.  You can view this page and video here or by clicking on the image below.
