Coronavirus is an infectious disease that has been confirmed in more than 15 million people across the world. You could be at risk of the deadly infection if you notice a subtle change to the smell of your urine, it’s been claimed.
The UK lockdown is slowly being eased, as shoppers are now allowed to explore the high-street in England, provided they remain socially-distanced.
You can also visit someone else’s garden, as long as there aren’t more than six people in the garden at once.
But the government has still advised the public to remain indoors as much as possible, in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.
You may be at risk of coronavirus if your urine starts to smell particularly strong, it’s been claimed.

“As COVID-19, caused by the coronavirus, continues to spread across the world, and possibly in your city, it’s important to know whether your symptoms are mild, moderate or severe, and when to seek medical help,” it said.
“Coronavirus typically causes the common cold or other mild respiratory viral illnesses, but this new strain can cause much more serious illness, even death, in some patients.
“Sometimes patients—usually those who are elderly or with underlying health issues—may develop moderate symptoms that could require some supportive care, such as fluids for dehydration.
“Even if you’re having moderate symptoms, you likely won’t need to be hospitalised, unless you’re having trouble drawing a breath or are dehydrated.
“You may be dehydrated if you’re experiencing increased thirst, dry mouth, decreased urine output, yellow urine, dry skin, a headache or dizziness.”
Moderate symptoms of coronavirus are similar to mild ones, including a fever, and a dry cough.
But, crucially, patients will feel so tired and fatigued that they’ll struggle to get out of bed.
If you have mild or moderate coronavirus symptoms, you should avoid going to hospital unless it’s absolutely necessary, however.
