As we continue to update the public we want to keep you abreast that there are multiple viruses which may cause the symptoms of:
- Scratchy or sore throat
- Stuffy nose
- Mucus draining from your nose into your throat
The most common is the rhinovirus, which is thought to be responsible for at least 50% of common colds. Other viruses that can cause colds include coronavirus (typical) not COVID-19, respiratory syncytial virus, influenza and parainfluenza.
The COVID-19 has been found to have three common symptoms: fever, cough and shortness of breath. The travel history is also very important.
