Experts have compiled a list of all the symptoms that could indicate that you have Covid-19.
The three main signs are cough, fever, and a loss of taste or smell.
However, there are many more signs that doctors and researchers say people should be aware of.
Researchers say there are 15 total symptoms to consider, including the official three reports The mirror.
They say the six most commonly reported symptoms outside of the three official symptoms are: headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle pain, diarrhea, rash, and confusion and delirium in the elderly.
You also watch the “Covid tongue” – redness, swelling or sores in the mouth.
The Zoe Covid Symptom Study App is a leading UK study working in collaboration with epidemiologists at King’s College London.
The study tracks the symptoms of more than 4 million people worldwide, and the UK app users’ entries were used by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to predict case numbers across the UK.
The researchers have warned people with Covid who still have less common symptoms that are not on the official Public Health England (PHE) list – like rashes.
They also recently made one available List of early warning signsand published a study of the six most common clusters of Covid symptoms in the British Medical Journal.

The six Covid symptom clusters
App researchers from the Zoe Covid Symptom Study and epidemiologists from King’s College London identified six common symptom clusters that could help people feel insecure.
The researchers were able to identify the clusters most commonly associated with mild and severe illness.
Almost half of the patients in the heaviest cluster needed hospital support.
The study was published in the British Medical Journaland highlighted that most patients who needed airway support later had symptoms around 13 days prior to hospitalization.
Here are the clusters they identified:
1. “Like flu” with no fever
Headache, loss of smell, muscle pain, cough, sore throat, chest pain, no fever.
2. Like flu with fever
Headache, loss of smell, cough, sore throat, hoarseness, fever, loss of appetite.
3. gastrointestinal tract
Headache, loss of smell, loss of appetite, diarrhea, sore throat, chest pain, no cough.
4. Severity level one, fatigue
Headache, loss of smell, cough, fever, hoarseness, chest pain, fatigue.
5. Severity level two, confusion
Headache, loss of smell, loss of appetite, cough, fever, hoarseness, sore throat, chest pain, fatigue, confusion, muscle pain
6. Severity level three, abdomen and respiratory system
Headache, loss of smell, loss of appetite, cough, fever, hoarseness, sore throat, chest pain, fatigue, confusion, muscle pain, shortness of breath, diarrhea, abdominal pain.
