Mobile networks remove data charges for online NHS coronavirus advice

Vodafone, EE, O2 and Three are among the mobile firms that have said they will give their customers free online access to the latest NHS health information about coronavirus.

It will be free to access the following websites:

nhs.uk
111.nhs.uk
wales.nhs.uk
nhsinform.scot
nidirect.gov.uk
publichealth.hscni.net

The NHS is working with its industry partners to make sure everyone can get NHS information and advice that is verified, up to date and free from misinformation, without using up their data allowance or mobile credit.

In response to the coronavirus outbreak, people with mild symptoms are being encouraged to visit nhs.uk/coronavirus for advice, and to avoid the illness by washing their hands more often and for at least 20 seconds with water and soap.
Health bodies and the government are helping people to self-isolate if they experience symptoms of the virus, most commonly a high temperature or a new continuous cough.
