Coronavirus: Virus isolation period extended from seven to 10 days


The change, announced by the UK's chief medical officers, comes as ministers try to avoid a resurgence of the virus. Until now, those showing key symptoms - a new continuous cough, a temperature or loss of taste or smell - have had to self-isolate for at least a week. The new advice is in line with World Health Organization guidance. The chief medical officers said the change is 'particularly important to protect those who have been shielding and in advance of the autumn and winter when we may see increased community transmission'. Evidence shows that people with Covid-19 have 'a low but real possibility of infectiousness' between seven and nine days after falling ill, they said.
