🦠 COVID 19 or 🤧 Cold or Flu? 🤷🏽‍♀️ They are all viruses 🦠 but all different.

There is a ↔️ cross over on symptoms and it can be hard to tell the 🤔difference between these 3 viruses particularly between COVID-19 🦠 and Influenza.

People may experience mild to severe symptoms and a variety of symptoms and not everyone will experience the same symptoms.

As a reminder Antibiotics 💊 do not 🚫 work for 🦠 viruses.
