COVID VS FLU VS ALERGIES

  • Experts note that the novel coronavirus, the flu, and allergies have different symptoms.
  • The main symptoms of the novel coronavirus are fever, tiredness, cough, and shortness of breath.
  • Allergies have more chronic symptoms and include sneezing, wheezing, and coughing.
  • The flu has symptoms similar to the novel coronavirus, such as fever and body aches, but influenza usually doesn’t cause shortness of breath.

If you have a runny nose or itchy eyes, it doesn’t mean that you have covid. However, if you have a cough, fatigue, and a fever, you might have COVID-19. Then again, it could also be seasonal flu. “Not all symptoms are created equally.

While it might seem like you have coronavirus, you may simply be experiencing seasonal allergies or influenza,” “There are many symptoms of cold, flu, and COVID that are similar, and it may be difficult to distinguish,” “They’re all caused by viruses, but different viruses cause each of these infections.”

“However, one key difference between the three is a symptom of coronavirus is shortness of breath “Shortness of breath is a common sign of COVID-19 which occurs prior to the development of pneumonia. Generally, the flu or a cold does not cause shortness of breath unless it has progressed to pneumonia, in which case you’ll also want to contact your healthcare provider.” “Influenza does mimic COVID-19 very closely, but the shortness of breath is not usually as severe as it is with COVID-19 With COVID-19, shortness of breath often occurs 5 to 10 days after the first sign of fever.

If you have not received your annual flu vaccine please notify the Wellness Dept. We will be happy to reach out to your physician to obtain an order and administer it to you. Please report any signs and symptom of Covid, Flu or allergies to the Wellness department immediately.

Please remember to wear your mask over your nose and mouth when on commom areas.
