With the change in the weather, many people start getting colds, flu and coughs. But this year most patients will have a sentence on their lips whether it is a seasonal disease or a symptom of COVID 19.
The new but persistent cough is one of the few prominent symptoms of COVID 19, including other high fevers and loss of sense of smell or taste.
According to the UK Department of Health NHS, the symptoms of cough in COVID 19 patients may be such that they experience a cough attack for one or three or more hours in 24 hours.
Martin Marshall, a professor at the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) in the UK, said: “If a patient experiences any of these symptoms we urge you to follow government guidelines and stay yourself at home. Isolate yourself and test if possible.
But it is also a fact that with the change of weather, the problem of cough becomes common in such a situation. the question will become difficult for most people whether they should really isolate themselves.
“The situation is a bit confusing,” said Jackie Smith. A respiratory professor at the University of Manchester.
We all have a number of viruses that cause runny nose and sore throat but no cough. Therefore, if it is accompanied by a cough and persists, then the COVID should be tested.
COVID 19 Patients Data
Data from a research app on cod symptoms suggests that if you have a cough caused by the common cold, it is not so much that it is difficult to speak, you have to wake up at night, or you have severe headaches or fatigue. It is not as common as COVID 19 patients.
“If you have a runny nose, swollen glands and sneezing, chances are you’re not a victim of COVID 19,” said Tim Spector, a professor of genetics at King’s London College.
He added that children with cod have a much lower incidence of cough than adults.
It is very difficult to differentiate between a cough that is a symptom of COVID or a common cough. And that is why medical experts are calling for improvements in the testing system to help people suffering from COVID 19 or other serious illnesses.
According to experts, the common cold, flu and COVID 19 have many similar symptoms. And can be difficult to distinguish between them. These are all diseases caused by viruses. But the viruses that cause all these diseases are different.
But one significant difference between the three is the difficulty in breathing a symptom of the COVID.
Flu or colds usually do not cause difficulty breathing until pneumonia develops.
People with the coronavirus usually have difficulty breathing within 5 to 10 days of the first sign of a fever.
Sneezing, runny nose, sore face and itchy eyes are all symptoms of allergies or the common cold. But they are not common in COVID 19.
