The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is the most serious health and medical crisis to appear this century, infecting many thousands of people in Scotland.
Most people suffer minor symptoms requiring basic self-care and some show no symptoms at all. However, coronavirus can lead to serious illness and, sadly, death.
Your health in your hand
NHS 24 has developed the Covid-19 app to put your healthcare in your hand. It links directly to NHS inform, our digital health and wellbeing information resource, to bring you:
- the very latest in clear, authoritative and factual clinical guidance on coronavirus
- instant alerts when key information changes or is updated
- the steps you should take to minimise the risk of infection
- an easy-to-use symptom checker
- advice if you have a potential infection
Easy to use and understand
The NHS 24 Covid-19 app has been developed to be simple and quick to use.
The service is text only and advertising-free, so you get the information fast without clutter or slow-to-load graphics.
Guidance and articles are written in clear, easy-to-understand language and keep medical terms to a minimum.
The app uses very little of your device's memory - less than 9 MB - so you shouldn't run out of space.
Get the app
The app is available, at no cost to download or use, for both Android and Apple mobile phones, tablets and Smart TVs from Google Play and the Apple Store.
