Flu or Cold Symptoms? Vital Things To Note
A cold is a mild viral infection of the upper respiratory system, including the sinuses, nose, throat, and mouth. It regularly occurs and typically disappears by itself in a week or two.
While several other viruses, including rhinoviruses, parainfluenza, and seasonal coronaviruses, can cause the common cold, only influenza viruses can actually cause the illness.

A sore throat is typically the first sign of a cold and subsides within a day or two. By the fourth and fifth days, nasal symptoms, a runny nose, congestion, and a cough have also appeared.

Some cases could be due to an ‘immunity deficit’ in the population resulting from a lack of exposure to seasonal influenza during the COVID-19 pandemic
There have been more flu hospitalizations in even the United States in the past ten years, and there is no indication that the virus will peak or dissipate in the upcoming weeks.
While influenza may be present all year round in tropical regions, leading to more occasional outbreaks, winter is the main season for seasonal epidemics in temperate climates.
