■ UK Government’s List of symptoms of COVID-19
After two years without updating its list of just three symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, a new continuous cough and a loss or change to the sense of smell or taste), the NHS has finally updated its list of symptoms of COVID:
😩 Shortness of breath
🥱 Feeling tired or exhausted
🤕 An aching body
🤯 A headache
🤐 A sore throat
🤧 A blocked or runny nose
😞 Loss of appetite
🤮 Feeling sick or being sick
■ ZOE COVID Study’s Top 20 symptoms of COVID-19 (as of 26-May-2022)
- Almost 1 in 20 older pupils have had long COVID – ONS
Among secondary school pupils, almost 1 in 20 (4.8%) have experienced long COVID following their latest infection.
This falls to 1 in 50 (1.8%) among primary school pupils.
Secondary school pupils with long COVID were also more likely to have a probable mental disorder, or report behaviours linked to eating disorders.
These findings do not indicate causality, because the analysis does not account for mental health status before having long COVID.
Pupils in school Years 7 to 13 with long COVID were significantly more likely to have at least one probable mental disorder (28.1%) than those without long COVID (12.3%).

Since February 2022, the UKHSA has slowly reduced the publishing of its daily COVID updates, following the UK Government’s narrative that we should all “live with the virus”.
England now reports on weekdays, Scotland reports on Mondays and Thursdays only, Wales reports on Thursdays only, and Northern Ireland has stopped reporting altogether.
The virus doesn’t take a break at weekends.
It doesn’t infect people from time to time.
It doesn’t stop at a border either.
The virus still spreads and kills people every day in the UK and around the world. COVID-19 is NOT over.
We, at PMP, have decided to continue to publish the latest COVID data available every day, especially the Zoe COVID Study estimates – probably more accurate than the UK Government’s own data since free testing has ended in England, and the ONS COVID Infection Survey estimates.
