Keeping our patients healthy is our number one priority! So, during flu season it is important for all of us to understand these two viruses.
Both COVID-19 and the Flu can have varying degrees of signs and symptoms, ranging from no symptoms (asymptomatic) to severe symptoms. Common symptoms that COVID-19 and flu share include:
- Fever or feeling feverish/chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Fatigue (tiredness)
- Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea
Other signs and symptoms of COVID-19, different from the flu, may include change in or loss of taste or smell.
