IS IT COVID-19 OR THE FLU?

when people with either illness cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.


Flu can cause mild to severe illness and sometimes even leads to death. Most people who get the flu will recover in a few days to less than two weeks, but some people will develop complications, such as pneumonia or sinus and ear infections. Other serious flu complications include inflammation of the heart (myocarditis), brain (encephalitis) or muscle (myositis, rhabdomyolysis) tissues and multi-organ failure. Flu shots are available and people at high risk (those older than age 65 years, those who have a chronic disease such as diabetes or asthma, pregnant women) are strongly urged to get one as soon as they can.


One significant symptom of COVID-19 it does not share with the flu is a sudden loss of taste or smell. COVID-19 is more contagious among certain populations and age groups than flu. It causes blood clots in the veins and arteries of the lungs, heart, legs or brain, something flu does not do. Severe signs of COVID-19 infection include trouble breathing; persistent pain or pressure in the chest; confusion; inability to wake up or stay awake; and bluish lips or face. Call 911 if

Ever since its arrival into the United States, many people have downplayed the coronavirus (COVID-19), insisting it is “just the flu” and relatively harmless. While both influenza (flu) and COVID-19 are contagious respiratory illnesses, they are caused by different viruses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2 and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses.


Some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, making it hard to tell the difference between the two based on symptoms alone. COVID-19 appears to spread more easily than flu and causes more serious illnesses in some people. It can also take longer before people show symptoms of COVID-19, and people can be contagious for longer. It is disingenuous to insist it is harmless.


How are COVID-19 and flu similar? Common symptoms the two diseases share include fever; cough; shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; fatigue; sore throat; runny or stuffy nose; muscle pain; body aches; and headache. One or more days can pass between a person becoming infected and when he or she starts to experience symptoms of the particular illness. With COVID-19, symptoms can appear as early as two days after infection or as late as 14 days after infection. People with COVID-19 may be contagious for a longer period of time than if they had flu. Both COVID-19 and flu are spread mainly by droplets made
