How to get rid of a sore throat – the 8 easy things to speed up recovery

A sore throat is not one of the three main symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste).

However, a sore throat could potentially be an early symptom of coronavirus.

Healthline explains that because Covid is a respiratory illness like the common cold, it is inhaled and enters your nose and throat first.

That’s why a sore throat could be an early indicator of the illness because it starts there and may replicate in the throat early on.

However, a sore throat isn’t a very common symptom of coronavirus.

The World Health Organisation study in China found that out of more than 55,000 confirmed cases, only 13.9 percent of people reported a sore throat.
