  • How to tell apart COVID-19 and the common flu?

    While some people may call it paranoia, others may think of it as prudent to isolate themselves if they begin to show symptoms associated with the common flu, including fever. Doctors say that while fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, every onset of fever should be suspected and investigated for the virus, albeit without panicking. Fevers commonly associated with monsoon related illnesses include malaria, dengue, leptospirosis, enteric fever, viral hepatitis, etc. As such, Dr. Sandeep Patil, Chief Intensivist and Physician, Fortis Hospital, Kalyan, says that while it is always important to seek timely medical treatment, there is also a need to differentiate between COVID-19-related fever and the common flu.
