Help slow the spread of COVID-19 by self-reporting your symptoms daily, even if you feel well.
Join millions of people supporting scientists at King’s College London to help our health services by identifying:
* How fast the virus is spreading in your area
* High-risk areas in the UK
* Who is most at risk, by better understanding symptoms linked to underlying health conditions
You will contribute to advance research on COVID-19 in partnership with leading scientific institutions like King’s College London and TwinsUK, one of the most clinically detailed studies in the world.
This app (formerly known as the Covid Symptom Tracker) allows you to help others, but does not give health advice. If you need health advice please visit the NHS website at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
This app is designed by doctors and scientists at King's College London, Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals and Zoe Global Limited, a health technology company.
If you would like to help out in this difficult time, then you can. Download the app and share daily your own status, even if you are well. With your help we can understand much better the situation up and down the country, how the disease presents itself to different people, and how it progresses.
This is a new virus which the UK has never seen before. There are a wide range of symptoms, which differ between people. With your help we can understand better how the disease presents itself depending upon individual factors such as health and age.
No information you share will be used for commercial purposes.
There are two parts to the app:
You will be asked to share some general information, such as your age and some health information, such as whether you have certain diseases.
We will ask you every day to let us know how you feel, so you can share your symptoms. We will also ask whether you have visited the hospital, what treatment you received there, and whether you have been tested for COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
We have been hard at work trying to improve our User Experience. As a first of many steps this release helps us:
- Set the foundation to help resolve technical problems
- Deprecate our Amplitude integration
- Integrate Firebase to deliver more personalised features
We hope you keep logging your health with us to help contribute to citizen science! Hope you have a great day and summer of 2022!

Ratings and Reviews
UX design fantastic
Kudos to everyone who created this app. When you take time to figure out the button placement (no matter which phase of the vaccination program you’re on), you have a complete team. I.e No matter if you’ve had the jab or not, the default buttons you need to tap are on, are in the same place. This makes it easy to log very quickly on a daily basis. Only one problem. Twice since May 2020 the app has stopped daily notifications (last one in past 2 weeks). I rely on the alerts and have just missed 5 days of reporting. iOS settings all ok and app settings still set on. Only way to restart alerts is to delete the app and reinstall. From experience, typically this sort of issue is very hard to find.
THANKS FOR IMPLEMENTING THIS: MAP IS ONE SCREEN BACK - AT THE TOP, PERFECT. One lowly request: I like to look at the UK map after each report, to see how my area is doing. Would be great to take me straight there or have a button - and zoom in on my area based on postcode. Not very important but would be the icing on the cake.
Congrats to the team. Take them out for meal/drinks when you can!
Great idea but a little flawed.
I find the idea of this app fantastic! It will be extremely helpful in tackling this disease and documenting lots of data. My main issue and area for suggestion is for the questions relating to whether you think you have had it. I myself believe my partner and I have had Covid-19 but despite me coming into possible contact with the disease I was not deemed ‘high risk’ by NHS 111 and was therefore not tested. This is where I think the app falls short of being incredibly helpful to scientists and data analysts. Where you ask ‘do you think you have had Covid-19?’ You should then ask what symptoms the person had, how long they lasted for, had they come into potential contact with someone with Covid-19 and how long before symptoms started presenting, and ask for a quick diary of events and a summary as to why they think they had it. The reason for this is you will get a better picture of incubation time, access fully the extent of how many were a 90%+ sure they had it, how many it may have been a cold, and based on age range, location, underlying illness you can find out survival statistics, severity of symptoms and get a rough idea of possible herd immunity going on. Basically your data would be more thorough, extensive and she’s better light on this disease which may be useful to the NHS, scientists and government. With all that said I still encourage people to use this app and keep up to date with how they feel in these uncertain times!
More options for fatigue especially to flag post viral fatigue
I think this is a great idea and well done for doing this really important work. I have been logging my symptoms since early in my Covid illness and I’m finding that there’s not really enough grades of options in some of the fields now that I’m improving. In particular, for fatigue, there is quite a lot between mild fatigue, and struggling to get out of bed. I can get out of bed now, but I wouldn’t describe my condition as being mild fatigue, it’s still pretty debilitating, and I’m actually looking forward to only having mild fatigue! Could you add an option of moderate fatigue? I can get out of bed and make myself tea or have a shower, but this makes me so tired I then have to go and lie or sit down again, I don’t consider this to be mild. I’m days if not weeks away from getting back to anything like normal.
There is speculation that some people will go on to suffer from long term post viral chronic fatigue after Covid. I think this app could be able to spot this trend if you adapted the questions.
Could you also add muscle weakness as an option. Now that I am able to move further from my bed, I’m finding that my legs and arms are pathetically weak compared to normal. I expect that’s partly deconditioning from having spend two weeks in bed, but it may be also part of post viral fatigue and is worth tracking.
