KONTAN.CO.ID – JAKARTA. Until now, there have been no signs that the corona virus is getting tame. Some mutations have even occurred so that the spread continues to spread. The difference between the common cold and COVID-19 also makes people even more anxious.

Recently, good news began to emerge regarding the success of the COVID-19 vaccine trial, which has a success rate of 95%. Even so, we still have to wait whether the vaccine can be really safe to use.

Given the uncontrolled spread of the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), it seems important to know the difference between the common cold and COVID-19 so that prevention efforts can be carried out more quickly.

In general, both the common cold and COVID-19 have fairly similar symptoms. Starting from sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath, headache, to feeling tired.

The symptoms of COVID-19, which are similar to the common cold, make this disease often treated too late. As a result, rapid transmission spreads to death.

Many people also underestimate the symptoms of COVID-19 as the common cold and do not take them seriously. Therefore, it is necessary to pay close attention to the differences between the common cold and COVID-19.

The difference between the common cold and COVID-19

The main difference between the common cold and COVID-19 is that people with flu will experience symptoms or pain in some parts of the first week. Meanwhile, people with COVID-19 will only feel sick in the second or even third week.

People who get COVID-19 will also feel pain or symptoms that last longer than people who have the common cold.

The difference between the common cold and the next COVID-19 is that people with COVID-19 will experience a decrease in the function of the sense of taste and the sense of smell.
