COVID 19 vs Common Cold vs Flu - Which one is it? (Doctor Explains)

  • COVID 19 vs Common Cold vs Flu - Which one is it?


    COVID 19 vs. Common Cold vs. Flu - Which one is it?

    Every fall and winter - coughing, sneezing, and sniffling, and the like.
    Is it the common cold?
    Is it the Flu? or
    It is COVID 19?

    All 3 of these have overlapping symptoms. And COVID 19 cases are already starting to increase in the US with the cold weather, which is just the beginning of the 2nd surge that everyone is talking about. COVID 19, flu, and common colds are all caused by viruses.

    Relevant Videos mentioned in this video :
    Airborne Transmission -
    Long Haulers COVID 19 -
    Pulse Oximeter for COVID 19 -
    Rapid Antigen Test for COVID 19 -

    These tiny infectious agents can survive only by getting inside the cells of animals or humans. There are more than 200 different viruses that can cause the common cold. The most common viruses that cause common colds are rhinoviruses and different types of coronaviruses. COVID 19 is caused by a specific type of coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. The specific virus that causes infection and how your body’s immune system responds to the virus determines the symptoms and severity of illness.

    The main way that these viruses spread from person to person are through the tiny droplets that sick people propel when they cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can fly six feet or more in the air, and they can spread the virus if they deposit on someone’s mouth or nose or they get inhaled into a person’s lungs. The novel coronavirus, meaning SARS-CoV-2, is also aerosolized and can travel up to 27 feet in the aerosolized form. That something I talk more about in a separate video Colborne transmission. With COVID 19, an infected person doesn’t need to show symptoms to spread the virus.

    About 40% of viral transmission happens before infected people show symptoms. After people are infected, if they develop symptoms, it can be for several days or for the duration of their illness. And about 1/3rd of people with COVID 19 never develop symptoms. You're contagious with the common cold the entire time you have symptoms, but you’re most contagious right after you catch the infection before you have symptoms. With the flu, you’re most contagious from the day before your symptoms start until about the fifth day of symptoms.

    It’s important to stay home with any of these illnesses when you or your child is most infectious. Viruses also spread through physical contacts like kissing or shaking hands, or when a person touches a surface (like a desk or doorknob) that has accumulated droplets from a sick person and then touches his or her own eyes, mouth, or nose. Viruses can live on surfaces for hours to days, although how long they remain intact and infectious depends on the virus, the surface, and the environment.

    COVID 19 is a real wild card here. There can be no symptoms, or it can be similar to the common cold. Or it can be similar to the flu. But it can also cause loss of smell, so that is somewhat of a unique symptom. And it becomes concerning when people develop shortness of breath, which is a result of pneumonia developing. So although both flu and COVID 19 can cause pneumonia, COVID is more likely to do so.
    With COVID, it can take anywhere from two to 14 days after exposure to the virus for symptoms to appear. On average, it's 5 days. And that is if people do develop symptoms. Another unique aspect of COVID is that symptoms can start out mild or even improve temporarily and worsen. Some people continue to have fatigue and other symptoms for months after their infection, the so-called “long haulers.”

    Why do some people get so sick with COVID? With COVID, the death rate ranges from 10% to 27% in people ages 85 and older but is less than 1% in those ages 54 and younger. One reason for this disparity may be differences in the aging immune system.
    Besides age, we know that there are other risk factors for more severe illness, like being male and having certain medical conditions like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and tobacco use. In a recent October study published in NEJM, researchers identified a specific cluster of genes that make some people more prone to have severe COVID illness. They also confirmed a potential involvement of the ABO blood-group system. There seems to be a higher risk in Type A than in other blood groups and a protective effect in Type O.

  • Infectious Diseases: Common cold or the flu?


    Influenza and the common cold are respiratory illnesses caused by viruses. Symptoms may be so similar they may be tell the difference at first. There are over 100 different types of rhinovirus, which is what makes the common cold so common, says Dr. Nipunie Rajapakse, a pediatric infectious diseases specialist at Mayo Clinic. The symptoms that we see with common cold tend to be runny nose, cough, some people may have a mild fever.

    “Influenza is a specific type of infection caused by a specific virus. That’s usually influenza A or influenza B virus. The cold, on the other hand, is caused by hundreds of different types of viruses. The main difference that you would notice is that influenza tends to cause what we call more systemic symptoms. You are more likely to have fever, body aches and pains than you are with the cold, which tends to be usually just runny nose, sore throat, and possibly some cough, says Dr. Rajapakse.

  • How to tell the difference between the flu and the coronavirus


    독감과 신종코로나바이러스 감염 증상 차이

    In the midst of the virus scare,... many people with flu-like symptoms might wonder, is it a cold, the flu or the coronavirus?
    So how does the new coronavirus compare with the flu?
    Our Kan Hyeong-woo explains.
    The incubation period for viruses that cause the ordinary flu is about two days.
    But the novel coronavirus can stay hidden in the body for up to fourteen days.
    And while both the flu and the coronavirus have similar symptoms including a fever, headache, cough and muscle pain, those symptoms usually occur all at once if you have the flu,...whereas patients with the coronavirus experience various symptoms over a longer period.
    In many cases of the coronavirus, the early symptoms are less severe than the flu.
    So what are the most common symptoms of the novel coronavirus?
    According to British medical journal The Lancet,... 82 percent of a study of 99 patients in Wuhan had fever.
    The second most common symptom was a cough.
    And 31 patients experienced shortage of breath.
    Only five patients had sore throat and four had a runny nose.
    There are also fewer patients with a stomachache and diarrhoea than during the outbreaks of the Middle East respiratory syndrome, MERS, and the severe acute respiratory syndrome, SARS.
    If you are experiencing any of these symptoms in South Korea,... you can find out the movements of the confirmed coronavirus patients on the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website to see whether you could have been exposed to the virus. If so, call 1339 and follow the instructions or visit a state-designated medical institution to check for the coronavirus infection.
    Even if you find no contact with the virus but are feeling sick, it's better to take precautions and avoid going out.

    Video Transcript:
    Patients come to us with flu symptoms and most of them have a panic situation that they have acquired COVID-19 disease. See, COVID-19 generally has a high grade of fever, point number 1

    Point number 2, they have sore throat. One more thing is, they present with dry cough

    And patients start to have difficulty in breathing
    The fever is not subsiding even after three days
    And the patient continues to have breathing difficulties
    The definitely he has to consult a local physician

    In normal flu, fever is generally in milder form
    They have simple sore throat which subsides in three days on its own

    Fever is a very simple term, but it has so much in it
    There are fevers that do not have flu as well
    Like, an episode of three to four days of fever
    following which there is body pain, joints pain and all that

    So in that case it might be a dengue fever or malarial fever
    Malarial fevers generally present with fever with chills and all that
    which occurs every two days

    If a fever is not subsiding for three days then have to generally contact a physician

    Fever is generally due to an infectious cause and an non infectious cause
    The most common are infectious cause
    Infectious fevers again the causes are multiple
    Like bacterial infections are more common and viral fevers are more common
    There are fungal infections, there will be parasitic infections as well
    Like Malaria, Helmentia

    Non infectious causes of fever are also plenty
    All the cancers like Lymphoma, Leukemia, they present with persistent fevers running for long days
    Drugs like Atropine can cause fever
    In heat stroke too the patient might have a fever
    which is a non infectious cause

    So the reasons for fever are plenty
    So we have to find out what are the causes of fever
    for that you need to consult a physician

    You cannot prevent most of the fevers
    Few fevers like malaria and dengue, vector borne fevers can be controlled by effectively maintaining the hygiene around the environment

    Cover19 disease, in which individual hygiene matters a lot
    Maintaining hygiene of your hands, maintaining social distancing
    and using masks in crowded places.

    If the patient has fever with flu
    I request them to just isolate themselves to a single room
    And if the patient has any other symptoms aggravating like
    high grade of fever is still persistent
    or breathing difficulty or something like that is there
    for that you need to consult a physician

  • Know the common symptoms of flu


    Influenza (also known as flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Flu is different from a cold. Flu usually comes on suddenly. People who are sick with flu often feel some or all of these symptoms; fever* or feeling feverish/chills (though, it's important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever), cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, and fatigue (or tiredness).

    How does COVID-19 compare to a regular cold or flu? Well, sometimes getting COVID-19 feels like “you’ve been hit by by a truck while having run a marathon the day before.” At least, that’s how Dr. Caoline Quach put it on Oct. 10, when asked to describe the feeling during the CBC Kids News Back-to-School Check-In in Minecraft. Of course, other times, people barely experience any symptoms at all. Either way, it’s “very hard to differentiate” between COVID-19 and a regular cold or flu, said the pediatrician and infectious diseases specialist, who’s based at the Sainte-Justine Hospital in Montreal. The problem is, the symptoms are just too similar. So, how are you supposed to know whether you have a case of the sniffles, or whether it’s time to get tested for COVID-19?

  • Symptoms of flu may be mistaken for coronavirus


    몸이 으슬으슬...독감일까? 신종 코로나일까?

    Some people might worry over symptoms like coughing or fever.
    But unless you've contacted coronavirus patients,.. doctors say it's most likely you have the flu, not the new virus.
    Park Se-young has more.
    The number of suspected flu cases each week in January exceeded 40 per one-thousand outpatients in Korea.
    This is nearly six times higher than when a flu warning was issued last November.
    The flu begins with a sudden high fever, …and although the initial symptoms are worse than the new coronavirus, …similar respiratory symptoms like coughing and runny nose make it difficult to tell the two apart.
    It's more accurate to see if there's a possibility of contact with a person diagnosed with coronavirus and review your recent travel history.
    Going to the hospital to see if you have the new coronavirus may actually get you infected with it. It's difficult to know whether the situation is widespread in the community. If you have respiratory symptoms, avoid contact with people and stay home.
    Unlike the new coronavirus, there are vaccines and medicines for the flu.
    Experts say flu patients with severe symptoms or underlying conditions should go to the hospital and get treated.
    And because the flu is easily spread, those with symptoms should refrain from going out and should avoid contact with people.

    How many times have you dismissed sniffles as 'just a cold,' and carried on with a stuffed nose and sinuses assuming that the symptoms would eventually run their course, perhaps a bit more quickly with a few doses of Mom's homemade chicken soup?

    Cold Versus Flu

    The flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses.

    What is a cold? What is the common cold? What causes the common cold?

    The common cold is a viral infectious disease that infects the upper respiratory system. It is also known as acute viral rhinopharyngitis, or acute coryza.

    Common cold

    The common cold is a viral infection of your upper respiratory tract - your nose and throat.

  • Autopsy Comparison of COVID 19 vs. Flu vs. Normal Lungs


    Autopsy Comparison of COVID vs. Flu vs. Normal Lungs

    Both COVID 19 and the flu can cause pneumonia and ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome). Both of these can cause respiratory failure and death. We know that COVID 19 is more likely to cause severe disease than influenza and has a higher case fatality rate. We also know that COVID 19 is much more likely to cause blood clots than influenza. In this recent study published in the NEJM, they compared lung autopsy findings from deceased COVID 19 patients and Influenza and compared those findings to people who died of other causes, who had normal lungs. This group, with the normal lungs, served as the control group. Pneumonia is a broad medical term that refers to an inflammation within parts of a lung or both lungs. This entails the tiny air sacs of the lungs, called alveoli, to fill up with inflammatory fluid, impairs oxygen flow from the air to the bloodstream.

    The consequences of pneumonia, whether caused by COVID 19 or influenza, can result in dangerously low oxygen levels in the bloodstream and, if not treated, can result in death. Sometimes if pneumonia is severe enough, it can cause ARDS, which refers to severe inflammation within both lungs, which causes extreme difficulty with getting oxygen into the blood. This is a well-known syndrome that can occur with either COVID 19 or influenza pneumonia. COVID 19 inflicts a particular type of damage in human lungs that is somewhat different from the picture we see with influenza. To understand the differences, researchers looked at the lungs of seven patients who died of respiratory failure from COVID 19 and then compared them to the lungs of seven patients who died of pneumonia caused by influenza A.

    They also compared them to the lungs of ten uninfected lungs, which came from people whose organs had been donated for transplant but were not used, so these were normal lungs. The researchers were careful to match and could the gender and age, so their comparisons among the groups of patients would be meaningful. All of the lungs came from older patients and whose average age in the covid group ranged from 68 years old for the females and 80 for the males. The influenza group's average age ranged from 62 years for the females and 55 for the males. Perhaps the most interesting and important finding of this research revealed damage to the lungs' small blood vessels, meaning lung capillaries. The lining of these capillaries is called the endothelium, and the cells that make up the endothelium have ACE2 receptors. The cells were, in fact, infected with covid. In this study, the researchers found severe microscopic injuries to the endothelium here, with actual disruptions of the cell membranes.

    They also found widespread clotting in these lung capillaries surrounding the alveoli, which included actual blockage of the capillaries, and microangiopathy, which involves thickening and weakening the small blood vessel walls leak blood and protein, further slowing the flow of blood. Although fibrin clots in the alveoli's capillaries were present in the lungs from both the COVID 19 and influenza patients, micro-clots in the capillaries surrounding the alveoli were nine times as prevalent in the lungs of COVID 19 patients as compared with the lung tissue of the influenza patients. What’s more, COVID 19 patients showed actual new blood vessel growth, primarily through a process known as intussusceptive angiogenesis. The word “angiogenesis” means the formation of new blood vessels. The term “intussusceptive” refers to something telescoping inside itself. In this context, it's referring to new blood vessels being formed by a pillar of tissue within another blood vessel, effectively splitting the vessel into two. The researchers believe this process contributes to more problems with clotting and inflammation of the lining of the blood vessels than is seen in the lungs of patients with influenza. Angiogenesis was seen much less frequently in patients' lungs with influenza and normal lung control. The researchers also looked at the ACE2 receptor, which allows the COVID 19 virus to gain entry into cells. Compared to the control group's lungs, there were more ACE2-positive cells in the lungs of both COVID 19 and influenza patients. The study speculates that the reason for more angiogenesis in the COVID 19 group is because of the evidence of viral invasion of these endothelial cells.

  • Dr. Karthik Tummala Explains How To Prevent COVID-19 | COVID-19 Symptoms And Precautions


    Dr.Karthik Tummala, MD., D.M. (Cardiology) General Secretary of Indian Medical Association, Vijayawada.

    What is coronavirus?: Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

    What are zoonotic?: Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.

    What are the signs of infections?: Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

    How to prevent infection from spreading?: Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Stay home when you are sick. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

    Who should wear a facemask?: It is not necessary for people who are well to wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases. Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others, Centre for Disease Control and Prevention said.

    What is the treatment for novel coronavirus?: There is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for COVID-19. People with COVID-19 should receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms. For severe cases, treatment should include care to support vital organ functions. People who think they may have been exposed 1IOVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider immediately.

    Do's: Cover your nose and mouth with disposable tissue or handkerchief
    • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water
    • Avoid crowded places
    • Person suffering from Influenza like illness must be confined at home
    • Stay more than one arm's length distance from persons sick with flu
    • Take adequate sleep and rest
    • Drink plenty of water/liquids and eat nutritious food
    • Person suspected with Influenza like illness must consult doctor

    Don'ts: • Touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands while coughing or sneezing
    • Hugging, kissing and shaking hands while greeting
    • Spitting in public places •
    Taking medicines without consulting doctor
    • Disposal of used napkin or tissue paper in open areas
    • Touching surfaces usually used by public (railing, door, gates, etc)
