How have Covid symptoms changed?

At the start of the pandemic, the main symptoms of coronavirus consisted of a fever, a new or continuous cough and a loss of smell or taste.

Since March 2020, a host of new variants have seen the most reported symptoms change to mirror those of the common cold or flu.

Analysis of symptoms reported through the ZOE Covid study app found that just 50 percent of people now experience the classic three symptoms of fever, cough and loss of sense of smell or taste.

Since Omicron became the UK’s dominant variant in late 2021, the loss of smell and taste has become even rarer with just one in five people experiencing it.
