What are some of the long-term effects of Covid-19?
Common long-term COVID-19 symptoms include: Shortness of breath. A lingering cough. Chest pain and heart palpitations.
What are the psychological effects of COVID-19 on children?
Children are likely to be experiencing worry, anxiety and fear, and this can include the types of fears that are very similar to those experienced by adults, such as a fear of dying, a fear of their relatives dying, or a fear of what it means to receive medical treatment. If schools have closed as part of necessary measures, then children may no longer have that sense of structure and stimulation that is provided by that environment, and now they have less opportunity to be with their friends and get that social support that is essential for good mental well-being.
What should I do if I develop COVID-19 symptoms during isolation?
If you develop symptoms while you are isolating, arrange to have a COVID-19 PCR test. If your test result is positive, follow the advice for people with COVID-19 to stay at home and start a further full 10 day isolation period. This begins when your symptoms started, regardless of where you are in your original 10 day isolation period. This means that your total isolation period will be longer than 10 days.

What does a positive COVID-19 antibody test mean?
A positive result means the test did detect COVID-19 coronavirus antibodies so it is likely you’ve had coronavirus before (even if you can’t recall having symptoms). It is not possible to say when. It does not mean you are guaranteed to be immune (protected) from further infection.You might get the virus again. It does not mean you cannot spread the virus to others. Negative antibody test result A negative result means the test did not detect COVID-19 coronavirus antibodies so it is unlikely you’ve had the coronavirus before.
What should I do if I still have symptoms after a negative COVID-19 test result?
If you still feel unwell after a negative test, stay at home until you’re feeling better. Contact a GP if your symptoms get worse or do not go away.
