Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For health information and advice, read the NHS website pages on coronavirus. Learn about the government response to coronavirus on GOV.UK.

 

We recommend taking paracetamol for the fever symptom of Covid 19.  The evidence demonstrates paracetamol will still work even if you have been taking it regularly for pain relief.
