How to distinguish coronavirus colds and flu? Source:

Ill bad! Not get sick!

Again and Again in their publications , which is raging in China, but not for hype and awareness for. This time we will talk about how to distinguish the symptoms of various diseases, including that the Chinese virus, the flu and colds. In spite of the apparent similarity of symptoms of these diseases, the differences are still there and they can say whether ill have to start to fear or to the hospital can be reached leisurely pace, without running. While many are able to explain the symptoms and exaggerate their condition, but the differences between coronavirus flu too obvious to be mistaken.

In the first place, is to say that when the first symptoms of any disease it is necessary to soberly assess their condition and not to be a hero, bravely carrying the disease “on their feet” and lie down at home or to go to the doctor. Only such means will allow , not simply to remove symptoms, leaving the body a lot of unnecessary medications and undertreated diseases that still find time to show themselves directly or indirectly. You just have to understand that “I am one” and take care of yourself. I do not want to give examples of what we pay more attention to what is poured into your car, but do not think the force-fed myself. Well, it's a distraction. Let's talk about the differences between the symptoms of disease.

Symptoms of coronavirus

At the time of this writing, the world has infected almost 30,000 people, of whom 550 died. On the one hand, values are not so big and you would think that the epidemic is not as terrible but do not forget about what safety standards are introduced in China and around the world to prevent the spread of the disease. Maybe if I hadn't, the scale would be much higher. Especially considering that over 99 percent of the cases recorded in China, is willing to believe.

It Seems that the virus is really just not available from the province he raged. Manifestations outside the region, are the exception rather than the rule. But still, while less than two per cent of the deaths do not make this epidemic the most severe in history. With all due respect to the dead, it is worse.

the Exact mechanism of transmission of coronavirus infection have not yet been clarified, which greatly complicates the situation to control outbreaks of disease

Chinese coronavirus is spread by airborne droplets and, in the first place, as well as other virus, affects the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. After infection the symptoms of the virus are noticeable shortness of breath, cough, vomiting and diarrhea. In some patients, some of this may not occur, but if it is, it is reason to think the person has more than serious.

How to distinguish coronavirus colds

Do Not confuse the common cold with a potentially lethal virus. Some , especially those who had the risk of infection (were in China, had contact with the Chinese, and the like), and you can imagine the symptoms and Google, saying that the time has come, but it is not.

For comparison, among the main symptoms of the flu, which is now also found as the season and weather only contributes to this, it is possible to note several other manifestations. For example, high fever that lasts 3-5 days, but sometimes more. Also the temperature rise in influenza in some cases accompanied by lack of energy, apathy, and even muscle pain. In this case, too, should go to the doctor, because each year the flu virus your features and it would be better to know them. And complications from the flu, if not an ordinary event, it is very possible.

With a cold, things are easier. The main symptom is the temperature, which rarely rises to very high values and holds, usually, a couple of days, sometimes longer. Then it comes to normal or close to normal values.

At the same time, the main symptoms of the common cold, in addition to are nasal congestion, runny nose and sneezing. Some additional symptoms do not occur very often, but if they are, again, need to see a specialist. In this case, when normal for that cold of these diseases is the one in which you can just sit at home and not go to the doctor. But it's everyone decides for himself and makes at your own risk.

Doing so, stay home!

How to heal from virus

To elaborate on the treatment process, we are not going, as in our General article about the viruses we have already talked in detail about methods of treatment. Now we can only briefly recall.

Most importantly — that understanding what drugs can be treated. It is not necessary to resort to the help of advertised drugs that work on the relief of symptoms. They bring down the temperature, causing the body to relative normal, but not eliminating him from the exciter and almost without any effect on the inflammatory processes.

Of Course, some people just can't tolerate even the temperature of 37.1 degrees, but it should be understood that the temperature rise — this is a normal process and part of the protective reaction of the organism, whichproduced millions of years and is designed to help protect against diseases. If you can tolerate the temperature, let the immune system do its thing. And of course, forget about antibiotics. For the virus they do not have any effect. It requires antiviral drugs.

Also, don't overuse vitamin C and citrus fruits (including fruit juices). Some benefits are there, but they have on inflammation, that too will not contribute to a speedy recovery. Moreover, the rate of vitamin C (which is good for the immune system periodically questioned) can be obtained simply from a good balanced diet. In General, the topic of nutrients it is possible to discuss .

In any case, rooting is bad, don't hurt yourselves, stay away from sick and not to spread the infection, if the sick themselves. For two days nothing will change and the body will say “thank you” if you give him a chance to recover.
