Covid-19 infections are on the rise, so you should embrace the security measures (social distance, covering mouth and nose, personal disinfection) – as well as you should notify the medical service if you have suspicious symptoms or are otherwise feeling unwell after contacting someone displaying such symptoms. As of now (October) the standard first step is calling your GP, or first-contact doctor.

The most common symptoms of Covid-19 include dry cough, fever, aches and pains, loss of taste or smell, and unexpected tiredness. Some sufferers have just two or three of these symptoms, while others feel seriously ill. Still, medical experts know of a number of other symptoms.
