How could we distinguish between a common cold and a corona virus infection? When should we be alarmed?05 Jun, 2021 | 07:32
It is difficult to differentiate Covid-19 infection in children from other viral infections such as common cold. One can suspect Covid 19 when there is a history of contact. One should be alarmed if the child has any of these symptoms – Irritability; feeding difficulty; breathing difficulty, fast breathing, tiredness, fever and reduced urine output.
