This article (BMJ 2020;368: m800 doi:10.1136/bmj.m800) was updated on 10 March 2020 to reflect changes to the case definition for covid-19, as defined by Public Health England.

The section ‘When to consider covid-19’ adds consideration for covid-19 in anyone requiring hospital admission with a flu like illness, acute respiratory distress syndrome, or either clinical or radiological evidence of pneumonia.

The infographic in this article has also been updated to reflect these changes.
