Flu and corona agreements

There are many similarities between flu and corona . In many cases, this makes it difficult to determine which virus you are carrying. For example, with both virus infections you can suffer from fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, a runny nose and muscle aches. Both viruses are also spread via droplets (for example by coughing or sneezing), via hands and via contact with mucous membranes.

Older people and people with underlying conditions are among the main risk groups in both cases. Furthermore, the flu and corona can both cause pneumonia, respiratory problems and bacterial infections.

Differences flu and corona

However, there are also differences between flu (the influenza virus) and corona (the coronavirus). With corona, loss of smell and taste is more often detected and there may be intestinal complaints. Furthermore, with covid-19 it can take longer before you actually develop complaints, which can be 2-14 days after infection. In the case of the flu, this is usually 1-4 days after infection.
