The transition between winter and fall can be tricky when it comes to protecting ourselves from getting sick. During the pandemic, it is even more of a challenge because it can be extremely confusing to distinguish between a common cold, flu, and the ultimate Coronavirus. Something that we can monitor and use to distinguish between these three categories are the symptoms. It is extremely important that we are well aware about the symptoms of each and opt for the correct health care when it is required. We have put together some important information that would help you distinguish between the symptoms of Coronavirus, the common cold, and flu.
Coronavirus: The most common symptoms for coronavirus are dry cough, fever, and loss of taste and smell. There are also symptoms that might occur sometimes such as fatigue, aches and pain, sore throat, headaches and shortness of breath.
