Influenza - Cold

Influenza and colds are very common, especially among children and the elderly. Their symptoms are similar and therefore it is very easy to confuse them. But in essence these are two different diseases.

There is only one way to get the flu: to become infected with the flu virus. The common cold is also caused by a virus but can be caused by a variety of infectious agents - especially rhinoviruses, adenoviruses, coronaviruses, among others - which can coexist or act individually.

The viruses that cause the flu and cold are always transmitted from one person to another, by coughing, sneezing, from the hands or through direct contact with surfaces or objects that a patient has come in contact with. The fact that the flu and colds occur more often in autumn / winter is due to the fact that we are more indoors, not well ventilated and we are closer to each other, thus facilitating the infection.
