How to know if you have common flu or COVID-19 infection?
With all the misleading information, people have started believing that coughing and sneezing once mean they have coronavirus. This is absurd and offers no valid statement.
Here are the symptoms of coronavirus:
- Sore throat Runny Nose
- Dry Cough or Wet Cough

How to protect yourself from COVID-19 infection?
Here are preventive measures you can adopt to save yourself from this epidemic. If you can prevent this infection, you will be able to reduce the risk of getting respiratory diseases and acute renal failure.
Wash your hands frequently
Regularly clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water. Use sanitizer after every 30 minutes. Make sure to sanitize every possible thing you come in contact with.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub kills the bacteria in hands.
Maintain social distance
It is essential to stay away from those who are coughing or sneezing or have flu. If you are traveling using public transport, make sure your mouth is covered with a mask.
Why? When someone coughs or sneeze, sometimes small liquid droplets releases from their mouth or nose. This droplet usually has a virus that can raise the risk of even common flu. If you are too close to them, you may breathe in the COVID-19 virus if the person is already infected.
Cover your mouth and nose with a bent elbow or use tissue paper when sneezing or coughing. In the end, dispose of the used paper or napkin immediately.
Why? The bacteria can easily spread through droplets. By practicing good hygiene, you can also protect those around you from cold, flu, and coronavirus.
Do not avoid common flu and fever
Stay home if you are not well and have a fever or common cold as well. Seek medical attention if you have breathlessness. Call your local healthcare provider and authority and get yourself tested.
Why? The local healthcare professionals have updated information about the presence of the COVID-19 virus in your area. Calling in advance will allow health care professionals to provide you the right care at the right time and elude the infection of the virus to others.
