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

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


    COVID 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?

    All 3 of these have overlapping symptoms. And COVID 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, flu, and common colds are all caused by viruses.

    Mentioned Videos:
    Airborne Transmission -
    Long Haulers COVID -
    Pulse Oximeter for COVID -
    Rapid Antigen Test for COVID -

    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 covid viruses. For example, COVID is caused by a specific type of covid 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 covid, meaning SARS-CoV-2, is aerosolized and can travel up to 27 feet in aerosolized form. That is something I talk more about in a separate video Colborne transmission. With COVID, 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 their illness duration. And about 1/3rd of people with COVID 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. You’re most contagious with the flu 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 their 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 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 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.

  • Flu and COVID-19: Similarities and Differences


    The 2020–2021 #flu season has merged with the #COVID19 pandemic. The illnesses are caused by separate viruses, but there are some similarities as well as differences. Lisa Maragakis, M.D., M.P.H., senior director of infection prevention for the Johns Hopkins Health System and infectious diseases physician at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, discusses the viruses as well as how you can prevent both, including the importance of getting a #flu vaccine.

  • You suddenly have a cough. Do you have omicron, a cold or the flu?


    With the rise of omicron cases nationwide, many want to know how to tell the difference between symptoms of COVID-19 and that of a common cold or flu.

    “As we know, this virus is highly, highly contagious – much more than the previous variants,” said Dr. Hai Shao, infectious disease physician with Sharp Chula Vista.

    He mentioned that omicron symptoms are similar to previous COVID variants.

    “They include fever, chills, headache, sore throat, and as it progresses, people will start having cough, shortness of breath, and difficulty breathing,” said Dr. Shao.

    He pointed out that while many symptoms are similar between COVID-19 and a common cold or flu, there are certain symptoms exclusive to COVID.

    the medical people I interact with at the hospital are far more optimistic than I've seen them since this all began in April last year

    Nobody want's to tempt fate or speak to loudly just yet ,,,its like walking on egg shells at the moment –

    But there are open beds and they're not filling up just yet - in fact there are 2 more beds now than last weekend.

    Kind regards,

    The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

    a high temperature

    a new, continuous cough

    a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

    Professor Tim Spector

    Omicron is set to be the dominant strain in the UK by Christmas,

    and in the New Year cases could hit a peak higher than anything we’ve ever seen before.

    Hopefully people now recognise the cold-like symptoms which appear to be the predominant feature of Omicron.

    Ahead of Christmas, if people want to get together and keep vulnerable family members safe,

    I’d recommend limiting social contact in the run up to Christmas,

    and doing a few Lateral Flow Tests just before the big family gathering.

  • 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.

  • Delta COVID-19 variant symptoms similar to common cold, flu


    The highly contagious Delta COVID-19 variant is one of the fastest spreading variants, but could also prove to be one of more elusive to diagnose, doctors say.

    That's because the Delta symptoms do not follow the most common COVID-19 symptoms.

    Dr. David Priest, an infectious disease specialist with Novant Health, said while the loss of taste and smell was the most telltale sign of the coronavirus throughout the pandemic, many getting sick with Delta present with more vague symptoms, like a runny nose or sore throat.

    Diagnosis is more difficult now with symptoms overlapping with another respiratory virus, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), which is spiking, and it could get even more complicated in the fall when cold and flu also join the mix more prevalently.

    Omicron, clinical picture (7th December)

    Dr Angelique Coetzee, South African Medical Association

    First to raise alarm about the new omicron

    Totally different symptoms

    Can be easily missed

    Body aches and pains

    Muscle pains


    Tiredness (1 to 2 days)

    Slight sore throat

    No severe cough

    No runny nose

    Decrease in patients coming to doctors

    South Africa vaccines


    J and J

    Hospitalizations, 99% unvaccinated

    Symptoms more intense in unvaccinated

    More intense but not severe

    Body aches and pains

    Muscle pains


    Lateral flow testing and Omicron

    Becomes positive after 24 hours up to 5 days

    Very accurate

    Omicron prevalence in SA

    Ref for graphics (3rd December data)

    SGTF has increased from 0.9% in October to 96.3% for November.

    Children under the age of 12 years accounted for 7.9% of the SGTF positives,

    and those 13 – 18 years old for 6.1%.

    For week 47,

    Hospital data from SA

    Live data, hospital patients who have tested positive

    Omicron and common cold

    Omicron has insertion mutation ins214EPE

    (From the common cold, HCoV-229E coronavirus)

    Could have been acquired by switching

    Involving the genomes of other viruses that infect the same host cells as SARS-CoV-2

    It is plausible that the Omicron insertion
    could have evolved in a co-infected individual


    Preliminary laboratory studies demonstrate that three doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine neutralize the Omicron variant (B.1.1.529 lineage),

    while two doses show significantly reduced neutralization titers

    Data indicate that a third dose of BNT162b2 increases the neutralizing antibody titers by 25-fold compared to two doses against the Omicron variant;

    titers after the booster dose are comparable to titers observed after two doses against the wild-type virus which are associated with high levels of protection

    As 80% of epitopes in the spike protein recognized by CD8+ T cells are not affected by the mutations in the Omicron variant, two doses may still induce protection against severe disease

    The companies continue to advance the development of a variant-specific vaccine for Omicron and expect to have it available by March

    in the event that an adaption is needed to further increase the level and duration of protection – with no change expected to the companies’ four billion dose capacity for 2022

  • Omicron symptoms totally different from Delta COVID-19 variant: South African doctor


    As more research is done into the newly discovered Omicron COVID-19 variant, some evidence is emerging to suggest that it might not present the same way as other strains of the disease.

    Patients infected with the Omicron COVID-19 variant look very different than those infected with previous variants like Delta, says the chair of South Africa’s medical association.

    “It’s totally different from the Delta,” Dr. Angelique Coetzee told Global News Morning on Tuesday.

    She said that these patients aren’t displaying the same loss of taste and smell, need for supplemental oxygen or elevated pulse rate that doctors noted with Delta patients.

    “It’s very much like a cold or flu type of symptoms,” she said, adding that patients are reporting headaches and body aches, and a slight sore throat.

    Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry indicated a significant shift in B.C.'s response to the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday, saying everyone should assume they've been a close contact and that contact-tracing is no longer effective.

    Because of the Omicron variant, Henry said the province is treating COVID more like the common cold.

    We cannot limit all risk. It is part of what we will be living with. We can use all the layers of protection, she said, such as following public health guidance, getting vaccinated, washing hands, wearing good quality masks indoors, keeping groups small and using the vaccine card program to manage risks.

  • What are the early symptoms of Omicron variant of COVID-19? Heres what one doctor has seen


    Dr. David Winter at Baylor, Scott & White in Dallas said some early symptoms of Omicron variant are different than other variants of COVID-19.

    The ultra-contagious omicron mutant is pushing cases to all-time highs and causing chaos as an exhausted world struggles, again, to stem the spread. But this time, we're not starting from scratch.

    Vaccines offer strong protection from serious illness, even if they don't always prevent a mild infection. Omicron doesn't appear to be as deadly as some earlier variants. And those who survive it will have some refreshed protection against other forms of the virus that still are circulating — and maybe the next mutant to emerge, too.


  • COVID or a cold - How to interpret your kids symptoms


    As children return to classrooms this month, pediatricians said the symptoms of a common cold, allergies, flu or COVID-19 often overlap, making testing for the coronavirus important for parents to consider if their child gets sick.

    Doctors said more children are getting infected with COVID-19, and they said those symptoms often look like other common illnesses. They recommend calling a pediatrician if they get sick this fall to see if they need a COVID test.

    A major thing to watch out for is a fever, especially if it’s over 100.4 degrees. Doctors said parents should also watch for other symptoms, like loss of taste or smell or a lot of coughing. If the child does not have a pediatrician to schedule a test, doctors say parents can turn to local county health departments to find a place.

    Covid symptoms linked to the new omicron variant have been described as “extremely mild” by the South African doctor who first raised the alarm over the new strain.

    Dr. Angelique Coetzee, chair of the South African Medical Association, told the BBC on Sunday that she started to see patients around Nov.18 presenting with “unusual symptoms” that differed slightly from those associated with the delta variant, which is the most virulent strain of the virus to date and globally dominant.

    “It actually started with a male patient who’s around the age of 33 ... and he said to me that he’s just [been] extremely tired for the past few days and he’s got these body aches and pains with a bit of a headache,” she told the BBC.

    The patient didn’t have a sore throat, she said, but more of a “scratchy throat” but no cough or loss of taste or smell — symptoms that have been associated with previous strains of the coronavirus.

    Coetzee said she tested the male patient for Covid, and he was positive, as was his family, and then said she saw more patients that day presenting with the same kinds of symptoms that differed from the delta variant.

    This prompted her to raise the alarm with South Africa’s vaccine advisory committee, of which she is a member.

    Other patients Coetzee had seen so far with the omicron variant had also experienced what she described as “extremely mild” symptoms, and she added that her colleagues had noted similar cases.

    “What we are seeing clinically in South Africa — and remember I’m at the epicenter of this where I’m practicing — is extremely mild, for us [these are] mild cases. We haven’t admitted anyone, I’ve spoken to other colleagues of mine and they give the same picture.”

    Investigations ongoing

    The WHO has said it will take weeks to understand how the variant may affect diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines.

    Coetzee’s initial observations are only based on a very small number of cases and experts are worried about omicron’s large number of mutations. Preliminary evidence suggests the strain has an increased risk of reinfection, according to the WHO.

    Early data suggests that the variant is spreading in South Africa more rapidly than previous strains did and that the variant, known formally as B.1.1.529, could be starting to trigger a new wave of infections, according to analysis by the Financial Times.

    It could take a while to fully understand what specific symptoms, if any, are attributable to the new omicron variant on a wider scale.

    Covid symptoms have changed since the virus first emerged in China in late 2019. The “alpha” and “delta” variants, first discovered in the U.K. and India, respectively, were seen to cause different symptoms, for example, with the latter causing more headaches, sore throat, runny nose and fever.

    The U.S. CDC has highlighted the variety of Covid symptoms that have been reported, noting “anyone can have mild to severe symptoms” that may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus.

    On the list of symptoms from the CDC are fever or chills, a cough, fatigue, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or a runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea.

  • 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.

    In this video, we will learn about differences and similarities between Covid 19, Common Cold, Flu and other Allergies.

    Your guide to avoiding coronavirus, flu and confusion this flu season:
    It sometimes feels like the more we learn about coronavirus, the harder it is to discern it from other illnesses.

    Now, flu season is upon us now, which is sure to present perplexing questions: Does having a fever mean I have COVID? Is this stuffy nose the result of a cold, or could it be the flu? Or allergies?

    There are at least a dozen symptoms shared by some or all of those ailments, making it nearly impossible to know what you have without a diagnostic test, a medical exam or both.

    The good news is that, in many cases, you don’t need to know the cause in order to know what to do. The key is to watch for changes in your or family’s health and to respond promptly.

    To help, we’ve put together this side-by-side comparison of symptoms as a quick reference.

    There are lots of similarities between illness from the coronavirus and the flu, but there are some differences that help doctors distinguish them.

    A key difference is the incubation period for the viruses -- that is, the time it takes to develop symptoms after exposure to it. The flu always strikes quickly, typically one to three days. Coronavirus, however, can take anywhere from two to 14 days. Which is why it’s important to isolate right away after being exposed so as not to unknowingly infect others.

    People usually recover from the flu in seven to 10 days, while it’s believed that it takes at least 10 days to recover from the coronavirus, especially those with severe cases, which can mean several weeks or even months of gradual recovery.

    The symptoms themselves are a bit more tricky to distinguish. Below is a list of 12 symptoms that are easily confused among coronavirus, the flu, the cold and allergies

    Fever: Coronavirus and flu both cause fever, but it’s rare for the common cold. COVID-19 patients usually have a fever of 100 F or higher, while flu sufferers often experience fever of 100F to 102F that lasts three to four days.

    Headache: COVID-19 patients sometimes have headaches. Flu sufferers often experience intense headaches. Headaches are rare with the cold, but sometimes caused by allergies.

    Extreme exhaustion: Patients with the coronavirus sometimes experience this intense form of fatigue, but it typically progresses slowly. Flu, on the other hand, often causes severe exhaustion as an early symptom.

    Body aches and pains: The flu virus often causes body aches that are severe. Aches are sometimes present with coronavirus, but not always.

    Fatigue and weakness: Very similar to body aches, fatigue and weakness are more common and usually more severe with the flu than with the coronavirus.

    Stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, sore throat: One or more of these are sometimes present with the flu, but they’re all rare for the coronavirus.

    Cough: Common to both flu and coronavirus.

    Shortness of breath: A serious symptom which occurs in severe cases of coronavirus, but rarely with the flu. Seek immediate medical attention immediately if you experience this life-threatening symptom.

    Diarrhea: Sometimes caused by both coronavirus and the flu.


  • The Immune System, T-Cells, and Covid-19


    So far we’ve been pretty focused on the antibody side of things during the pandemic, but recent work suggests that T Cells aren’t sitting this one out, and that could mean something significant in terms of immunity, even for people who haven’t been infected with the new coronavirus.
