The rising cases of Covid during the monsoon season have created confusion among the people, as the symptoms of both covid and common cold look similar. But now, the UK ZOE Covid Symptom study app shows how to spot the difference between Covid and the common cold.
According to Tim Spector, an epidemiologist at King’s College London and leader of the study app, fatigue and sore throat are common with both diseases. However, people down with Covid are likely to witness severe fatigue and bad throat, more so in the early hours of the day.
Spector twitted – “Symptoms much the same except generally more fatigue and sore throat. So best to assume it’s Covid!” he said adding “hopefully this wave will be over soon. There are twice as many Covid cases as common colds currently and the ratio has never been so high”.
He later advised people to get tested if they spot cold-like symptoms, Express.co.uk reported. “Try and get tested if you can. If you can’t get tested, assume you’ve got a cold and stay away from other people until you feel better. The most common cold-like symptoms currently reported are runny nose, sore throat, headache, persistent cough, and mild and severe fatigue,” he added.
