does the attachment ask for anything like bank details, if so there might just be a phishing email without an actual virus, if not most computers have a way to scan your computer for viruses, if you're on windows search virus and threat protection in settings then click on scan options followed by full scan

edit: i forgot your on iphone, apple is generally ok with antivirus, but i dont own one so i dont know what you can do

Like the person above said, your phone might have a virus scanner so you can check/remove any virus. If not then you can probably find one on the app store, you may have to pay a few quid though

Download a mobile malware app like Malwarebytes and turn your WiFi off for now.

Let the app run a scan and check for viruses, it should be fine if it doesn't pick anything up.

Download an antivirus app (if you don't have one already) and scan your phone to make sure it doesn't have malware or a virus.
