Hello doctor. I want to ask. What is the difference between the common cold and corona flu?

1 Answer:

Hello Desvandi,

Thank you for the question.

Flu is usually a layman's term that refers to a set of symptoms, such as runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing, and so on. This condition can occur when the respiratory tract (especially the nasal cavity) is inflamed due to various possible causes, for example:

 Allergies, for example cold allergies, dust mites, pollen, etc. Irritation, for example after exposure to dry air, pollution, or chemical fumes Infection, for example due to viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms Other factors, such as foreign body, polyps, septum deviation nose, immune disorders, drug side effects, disorders of blood vessels and nerves around the nose, etc. As mentioned above, there are many types of microorganisms that often cause flu symptoms, especially viruses. Coronavirus can also be one of them. With good endurance, coupled with fast and proper handling, Coronavirus infection can be cured. But on the contrary, if the patient's endurance is poor, or late treatment is carried out, then this disease can lead to more severe complications, including shortness of breath, respiratory failure, and death. Unfortunately, so far, this virus has spread, with transmission that is very easy, and the vaccine has not been found. Therefore, most people are not immune to it, and are prone to getting sick, and then develop into serious complications.

It is not quite right to distinguish between flu and Corona as you asked. It is more appropriate to mention that Coronavirus is a type of microorganism that can cause flu-like symptoms.

That's all our explanation. More details, do not hesitate to consult directly with a doctor or doctor of internal medicine

I hope this helps.
