How are you feeling?

How many days have you had symptoms?

Now for the important bit. Do you have any of these symptoms?

We are keen to understand how COVID-19 is affecting people with long-standing health problems. Do you have any of these conditions?

Take a look at these descriptions of mild, moderate and severe COVID-19. At the end, tell us which one best describes how you’re feeling now.

Mild COVID-19

How it feels: You’ll have flu-like symptoms, which can include cough, mild fever, headache, muscle pain and tiredness. You won’t be short of breath in general. You shouldn’t have a high fever. Keep yourself hydrated and rest. More info...

Moderate COVID-19

How it feels: You’re more breathless and feel your heart beat faster when you move around. The cough is more noticeable. You’ll be coughing many times an hour and it’s probably making you tired. You may have symptoms of a fever like shivering and chills. More info...

Severe COVID-19

How it feels: You’re going to feel very breathless (even when you’re resting), and might find it hard to finish sentences. Along with chest, stomach or back pain when you breathe, these can be signs you’ve developed pneumonia. You will not be eating and drinking normally. Other signs include a high fever. More info...

Warning: If you’re feeling increasingly breathless, can’t manage basic things like showering and eating, or if you can’t speak in whole sentences without taking extra breaths, call your local health service right away.
