How many days before my trip should I take my COVID-19 test?
Each country that requires a negative COVID-19 test for entry has slightly different rules and regulations for how long your test will be valid.
For example, some countries require that your test was done within 72 hours (3 days) before you land there, while others require that your test was done within 72 hours before you depart the UK.
We recommend taking your test as early as you can within the time period the country you're travelling to requires, as this will give you the time to get your test results back and make any alternative arrangements if you need to.
Can I use an NHS COVID-19 test instead of a Fit To Fly Certificate?
No, you can’t use an NHS COVID-19 test result instead of a Fit To Fly Certificate.
NHS tests won’t give you the documentation you need to enter another country, so you’ll need to get a private test done before you’re due to depart.
What vitamins are best to fight off Covid-19?
It’s important to note that no vitamin can cure or prevent you from catching a disease.
While no research currently supports the use of a supplement against the protection of covid-19, boosting your immune system may prevent you from catching two viruses at the same time, and in turn, reducing the severity of your symptoms.
Vitamin C, D and zinc are all essential to the normal function of your immune system.
Can I experience loss of smell or taste after COVID-19?
it’s common to lose your sense of smell after having a virus or upper respiratory tract infection, and as COVID-19 (also known as Coronavirus) is a viral infection it may also cause post-infectious loss of smell.
“Post-viral anosmia is one of the leading causes of loss of sense of smell in adults, accounting for up to 40% cases of anosmia.
Viruses that give rise to the common cold are well known to cause post-infectious loss, and over 200 different viruses are known to cause upper respiratory tract infections.”
It goes on to state,
“Previously described coronaviruses are thought to account for 10-15% cases.
It is therefore perhaps no surprise that the novel COVID-19 virus would also cause anosmia in infected patients.”
