    A reminder from doctors on just what symptoms you should come forward with - if you're concerned you've got coronavirus

    A reminder from doctors on just what symptoms you should come forward with - if you're concerned you've got coronavirus


    Covid-19 testing's being ramped up - with the case definition widened to include those with COVID-19 respiratory symptoms - regardless of travel history or contact with a confirmed case.

    Royal New Zealand College of GP's, doctor Samantha Murton, says some patients will still be keen to be tested but won't fit covid-19 symptoms.

    She's stressing fever is the main symptom they need to see patients about.
