  • Any other significant disease, disorder or finding which may significantly increase the risk to the volunteer because of participation in the study, affect the ability of the volunteer to participate in the study or impair interpretation of the study data.
  • History of laboratory confirmed COVID-19.
  • New onset of fever or a cough or shortness of breath or anosmia/ageusia since February 2020. Should a reliable test become available, this exclusion criteria will be replaced with seropositivity for SARS-CoV-2 before enrolment.
  • Those who have been at high risk of exposure before enrolment, including but not limited to: close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases, anyone who had to self-isolate as a result of a symptomatic household member, frontline healthcare professionals working in A&E, ICU and other higher risk areas. Should a reliable test become available, this exclusion criteria will be replaced with seropositivity for SARS-CoV-2 before enrolment.
  • Living in the same household as any vulnerable groups at risk of severe COVID-19 disease (as per Public Health England guidance)

Additional exclusion criteria (subset of participants receiving Paracetamol in group 4 only)

• History of allergic disease or reactions likely to be exacerbated by Paracetamol
