Symptoms Of Coronavirus (And How To Tell When It’s Just Cold Or Flu)
The recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has affected many lives, directly or indirectly.
But what is the coronavirus?
Coronavirus is a common virus that causes infection in the sinuses, nose, or throat. The disease caused by this new type of coronavirus, COVID-19, brings about a respiratory tract infection that can affect both your upper (nose, throat, and sinuses) and lower (lungs and windpipe) respiratory tract. It is transmissible from one person to another when they are in close contact with one another via droplets from a cough or sneeze. The severity can range from mild to serious.
These symptoms can manifest in as short as a couple of days or as long as a couple of weeks, varying from one person to another.
But how is it different from the regular flu or cold? Here’s a short infographic we created to help you figure it out. You may even want to save it in case you need it later!
So if you’re feeling under-the-weather and are wondering if you just came down with a regular, run-of-the-mill cold or flu—or the more perturbing coronavirus, check your symptoms against this list.
