The difference between influenza (influenza) and COVID-19
The flu (flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. COVID-19 is caused by infection with a coronavirus first identified in 2019, and influenza is caused by infection with influenza viruses.
COVID-19 appears to spread more easily than the flu. However, as more people are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 is expected to slow. More information is available here on COVID-19 vaccines and their effectiveness.
Compared to the flu, COVID-19 can cause more serious illness in some people. COVID-19 may also take longer for people to show symptoms, and people may be contagious for longer.
Since some of the symptoms of influenza, COVID-19, and other respiratory illnesses are similar, the difference between them cannot be made based on symptoms alone. Tests are needed to determine the nature of the disease and to confirm a diagnosis. People can be infected with both the flu and the virus that causes COVID-19 and have symptoms of both the flu and COVID-19.
While more is learned about COVID-19 and the virus that causes it every day, there are still things, such as post-COVID conditions, that are unknown.
