Health! Is it flu or the corona virus? It’s hard to tell apart without a test?

Dhe uncertainty is great: In this time of year, many people sniff and cough around us. Of course, not everyone has one Corona infection – but it is difficult to distinguish the symptoms. So far, doctors have assumed that there can only be a suspected case of someone who has had contact with a confirmed case or who has returned from a crisis area. Nevertheless, caution is required – if you feel sick, you should not go to work and cure yourself to keep the risk of infection low.
Sore throat, cough, fever, headache and body aches and fatigue all occur in one flu as well as with a corona infection.
