The United Kingdom has updated its official list of COVID-19 symptoms, expanding from the original three to a total of nine symptoms.
The original symptoms were fever, cough, and loss of smell or taste.
According to the BBC, the U.K. Health Security Agency updated its guidance to now include symptoms similar to that of the common cold or flu, including muscle pains and a sore throat.
The move to expand the diagnosis of COVID-19 comes more than two years into the pandemic and just days after free testing ended in England. The NHS cautions that many of the new symptoms are “very similar” to the cold and flu.
The World Health Organization and the United States have used the long list of symptoms for over a year, especially in regard to shortness of breath and muscle pains. However, deciding precisely which symptoms should be recognized and qualify someone for a COVID-19 test has been a matter of debate in the U.K.
The original three symptoms, fever, cough, or loss of sense of smell or taste, were initially settled on because they present in most COVID-19 cases, or are caused almost exclusively by the virus.
The full list of symptoms now reads as follows:
- shortness of breath
- feeling tired or exhausted
- aching body
- sore throat
- blocked or runny nose
- loss of appetite
- feeling sick or being sick
In the United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a second booster shot for Americans over the age of 50 in recent days. Unlike the previous booster, however, it is not necessary to be considered fully vaccinated.
The shot can only be from either Pfizer or Moderna.

At midnight on the 25th of March, the Coronavirus Act of 2020 officially expired in England. The legislation was designed to temporarily use government emergency powers to change and bypass other laws and legislation to “combat coronavirus to stop the spread of the virus.”
Key provisions included:
- Postponement of elections, referendums, recall petitions, and canvass
- Control of events, gatherings, and the use of premises
- Power to suspend port operations
- NHS pension schemes: suspension of restrictions on return to work
- Temporary closure of educational institutions and childcare premises.
- Extension of time limits for the retention of fingerprints and DNA profiles
- Suspension: transportation, storage, and disposal of dead bodies
Whilst politicians struggle to define what a woman is, the cost of living has increased dramatically with the biggest drop in living standards since 1956, the heaviest tax burden since the 1940s, and a cut of income tax by only one penny for most taxpayers — but not until 2024.
There will be no accountability for the gaslighting, the lies, and the deceit that has been inflicted over the last two years on the citizens of this country.

The most recent iteration of the Worldwide Freedom Rally was hosted on 19 March 2022, where thousands of people flooded the streets of London after restrictions in the United Kingdom have eased to the point where England has virtually none at all.
My objective of the day was to ask protesters who attended the rally since the restrictions are largely over, why are you protesting and what makes it significant?
The responses were a mixture of “justice needs to be served” to new arising threats, such as the Police, Crime, Sentencing, and Courts Bill which threatens freedom of expression to the point where police in the U.K. have the power to shut down “unlawful protests”. One act of unlawfulness stipulated by the bill is if the protest is “too loud” and crosses a certain decibel threshold — something we've seen implemented in Canada following the Freedom Convoy protests — it grants police the right to shut it down.
Another concern was the Online Safety Bill and how freedom of speech will be withered to a state of “right thought” as opposed to the sharing of information, no matter if it is correct or not, especially when it relates to the subject of vaccine efficacy.
It's safe to say that these events bring together a wide range of political engagers from both the left and the right — from David Kurten of the Heritage Party, a Christian Traditional conservative political party, to Gareth Icke of Ickonic, an alternative media platform — it shows that there are people from all over the political spectrum coming together to support a common cause: civil liberties.
