Loss of smell and taste added to official coronavirus symptoms

A loss or changed sense of taste or smell will be added to the NHS coronavirus symptoms list, weeks after experts first raised concerns that Covid-19 cases were being missed.

Until now, only a fever and cough were triggers for people to self-isolate in case they had the virus and were at risk of spreading it.
