More than HALF of people who test positive for Covid have no symptoms – but fatigue is still most common sign, official data shows
- Office for National Statistics found 53 per cent suffered no symptoms
- Fatigue, headache and cough were the most common warning signs, they said

More than half of people who test positive for Covid suffer no symptoms, official figures revealed today.
Office for National Statistics data showed 53 per cent of those diagnosed with the virus in March said they had no warning signs — including a fever or cough.
But among those that did have symptoms, fatigue was the most commonly reported symptom.
The NHS only lists a temperature, new continuous cough and loss of taste and smell as tell-tale signs of the virus.
Health chiefs have been repeatedly criticised for not including other less common side effects, such as diarrhoea and nausea.
