CORONAVIRUS
Latest Advice
Symptoms
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste  

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
  • Visit NHS 111 Online for more information

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

TCD scientists identify genetic mutation linked to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder
A team of medical scientists at Trinity College Dublin have identified a rare genetic mutation, which increases the risk of developing schizophrenia or bipolar disorder more than tenfold. The study examined blood samples from over 1,500 Irish people with schizophrenia and over 1,700 people without, for variations where genetic material was duplicated, or deleted. Once the genetic mutation was identified in Irish cases, the team checked for the mutation in a larger European sample of over 25,000 people. Researchers at Trinity identify genetic mutation that leads to schizophrenia. This confirmed that the genetic duplication, while rare, increased the risk of developing schizophrenia or bipolar disorder more than tenfold. Dr Aiden Corvin, Professor in Psychiatry at the TCD school of medicine, said progress in understanding the molecular mechanisms of disease gives hope that new effective treatments will emerge. The next steps will be to understand how this duplication interferes with brain cell function and to test how it might be reversed. Prof Corvin said that treatment in the area of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder had advanced little in the last 40 years. Schizophrenia or bipolar disorder affects around one in 50 Irish adults. The study was funded by the Wellcome Trust and Science Foundation Ireland and included collaborations from experts in Europe and the US.
