COVID-19 linked with new set of symptoms, according to study of over a million people

Chills, loss of appetite, headache and muscle aches could be a sign of COVID-19 infection, according to new findings.

Based on swab tests and questionnaires taken from June up until last month as part of Imperial College London's REACT study of over one million people, those with the above symptoms were more likely to test positive for the virus.

This is in addition to the "classic" symptoms of COVID-19 already included in NHS guidance, which are:

• Fever

• New persistent cough

• Loss of sense of smell and taste
