Reading now: 810

As universal testing ended throughout the weekend, the NHS has updated its list of official Covid symptoms. The health service quietly extended the list of official symptoms on Friday afternoon after it remained unchanged for the two years the pandemic had spread throughout the country.

Previously, only three symptoms were listed on the NHS website: a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to smell and taste.

These symptoms were first posted at the start of the pandemic and had remained unchanged until now. But with new variants continuing to pop up all over the world, the list has now been updated with nine extra symptoms listed, the Mirror reports.

After listing the symptoms, the NHS website highlights: “The symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu.” While people who experienced any of the symptoms listed on the NHS website, "even if mild", they were advised to get tested as soon as possible.

Occupy Galle Face protest welcomes the New Year
COLOMBO (News 1st); The Sinhala and Tamil New Year, traditionally a joyous period of celebration and festivities, dawned this year amidst many challenges faced by Sri Lankans. The shortage of fuel, gas, essential medicine and food all accumulated to formulate the Economic Crisis which Sri Lanka is currently undergoing, which had left the population reeling, the Cabinet Ministers in charge of critical subjects resigning, and nobody to take accountability for the crisis as the Parliament, which convened for several days, also concluding their sessions without any resolutions with regard to the people’s problems. This had led to masses engaging in protests in front of the Presidential Secretariat for the sixth day in a row today (14), as the farmers mark the New Year, traditionally celebrated in line with bountiful harvests, this time, without fertilizer, rice being purchased at low prices, and paddy fields abandoned with weeds. However, amid crises, Sri Lankans still managed to welcome the New Year by wishing prosperity to the country and all of Sri Lanka’s children. The ritual of ‘boiling milk’ was held at the Independence square and Galle Face both amid protests, while the protestors also engaged in the New Year ritual of ‘visiting relatives’ by walking from Independence Square to Galle Face, and proceeded to greet the Police who were guarding the Presidential Secretariat with betel leaves. Moreover, many avurudu celebrations such as avurudu games were held with a twist at Galle Face, which were creatively designed to convey the thoughts and complaints of the protesting public at the venue. One such youth, speaking to News 1st, stated that “They have decided to ruin our Avurudu, therefore we are ruining them for Avurudu”
