Are you coughing, having a sore throat, perhaps feeling down, or having a body ache. Kindly note that the season of colds and flu is back. Sadly with the current Covid 19 pandemic at large, you may find it difficult to determine if this is just another cold, flu, or the real thing.

Most of the symptoms are the same for all three. SARS-CoV-2 causes the Covid-19 virus, while common cold occurs due to rhinoviruses because these two are pretty similar. Their symptoms have similarities.

The Symptoms that Covid-19 and common cold share include:

  • Cough
  • Sore Throat
  • Runny Nose

Sometimes a common cold may also have:

  • Tiredness
  • Body Aches
  • Sneezing
  • Fever

The Symptoms that Covid-19 and flu share are:

  • Cough
  • Muscles Aching
  • Tiredness
  • Sore Throat
  • Fever
  • Difficult Breathing
  • Runny Nose

Symptoms exclusive to Covid 19 include:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of taste and smell

At times such as these, we urge that you do not take any chances. Take care of yourself, avoid being in crowded spaces, wear a face mask, avoid close contact with everyone, wash your hands with soap or use a sanitizer constantly when coughing or sneezing cover your mouth.

If you still face the symptoms, make sure you get yourself tested for Covid1-19 and stay isolated until the results are out. If the results are negative, get yourself vaccinated immediately, and if the results are positive, follow local Covid-19 isolation protocols. You need to ensure you do not spread the virus.
