Coronavirus warning – how your poo could reveal your risk of deadly COVID-19 infection

Coronavirus is an infectious disease that has been confirmed in more than eight million people across the world. You could be at risk of the virus if you develop unexplained diarrhoea, it’s been revealed.

The UK lockdown is slowly being eased, as shoppers are now allowed to explore the high-street in England, provided they remain socially-distanced.

You can also visit someone else’s garden, as long as the person you’re visiting isn’t shielding, and there aren’t more than six people in the garden at once.

But the government has still advised the public to remain indoors as much as possible, in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.

You could be at risk of the infection if you develop diarrhoea, it’s been revealed.

“COVID-19 affects different people in different ways,” said the World Health Organization (WHO).

“Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalisation.

“Less common symptoms [include] aches and pains, sore throat, [and] diarrhoea.

“People with mild symptoms who are otherwise healthy should manage their symptoms at home.”

The most common symptoms of coronavirus include a high fever, and a new continuous cough.

Shortness of breath and a loss of smell or taste have also been linked to the infection.

Some patients have also reported diarrhoea, headaches, and even a widespread rash.

If you’re worried that you may have the infection, you should quarantine yourself for at least seven days if you live alone, and at least 14 days if you share a household.
