Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has encouraged those worried about COVID symptoms to get tested to help stop the spread of the virus and its variants.
Colm Gildernew said:
“The spread of the delta variant of the COVID virus across the north is very concerning.
“Doctors have said that alongside the already known symptoms, those who test positive for the delta variant often have a sore throat rather than a cough as the main symptom.
“I would call on anyone with any symptoms to get a COVID test in order to help stop the spread of the COVID variant so we can continue with our pathway to recovery.”
