Coronavirus is becoming a spent force in the UK – if the numbers are anything to go by. The last 24 hours saw 18 deaths in England, two in Wales and one in Northern Ireland. No fatalities have been reported in Scottish hospitals over the past 24 hours.
One lesser-known sign is a sensitivity and irritation to light, according to Mayo Clinic.
Other eye-related symptoms include enlarged, red blood vessels, swollen eyelids, excessive watering and increased discharge, notes the health body.
“These symptoms are more common in people with severe infections,” it adds.
According to Harvard Health, other more concerning indicators include high fever, severe cough, and shortness of breath.
If you only show mild symptoms, UK health advice says to self-isolate for seven days from the moment they appear, however.
You can stop self-isolating after seven days if either:
- Your symptoms have gone
- You just have a cough or changes to your sense of smell or taste – these symptoms can last for weeks after the infection has gone
- The NHS says to keep self-isolating if you still have any of these symptoms after seven days:
- A high temperature or feeling hot and shivery
- A runny nose or sneezing
- Feeling or being sick
- Loss of appetite
It adds: “Only stop self-isolating when these symptoms have gone. If you have diarrhoea or you’re being sick, stay at home until 48 hours after they’ve stopped.”
