    Update:

    " Scientists Tim Spector, Claire Steves and researchers from Kings College London report the state of the nation’s reported symptoms as of 3pm on 27th March 2020.

    We report the state of the nation’s reported symptoms as of 3pm on 27th March 2020. Most people of the 1.4 million users analysed yesterday afternoon reported being as healthy as normal. The vast majority of users who are unwell are putting up with their symptoms at home without burdening the NHS.

    Of those reporting symptoms, the commonest recorded was fatigue (50%), with 11% of those reporting severe fatigue which is laying them up in bed. Chest pain (29%), cough (28%) and shortness of breath (28%) come next, but other “newly reported” symptoms not previously associated with the classical disease such as hoarse voice (19%), loss of smell and taste (18%), loss of appetite (16%) and diarrhoea (16%) are also very common.

    What we don’t know at this stage is precisely how many of these symptoms are due to COVID-19, as very few people in our sample report are actually being tested for SARS CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19. We are looking at combinations of symptoms to see how they might cluster together. We are passing our analyses on to the NHS so that the anonymised citizen science data can be incorporated into our national understanding
