Flu, a cold, or COVID? Do you know the difference?

Feeling unwell can be especially concerning these days. Determining the cause of an illness can be tricky because many share symptoms that can leave you coughing, sniffling and sneezing. But there are important differences.

Coming soon, one test can help you get to the bottom of what is causing these symptoms. Figuring out what’s making you sick can help you recover and prevent spreading sickness to others.

Winter is the prime cold and flu season. You’re more likely to be indoors and closer to others when it’s colder outside. Available soon, our new diagnostic test will help you distinguish flu from COVID-19 with one sample.

Covid-19 vs Flu

Wintery mix of viruses

Flu and COVID-19 are caused by different viruses that can be spread among people. Flu is caused by the influenza virus. COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2. Both can give you a fever, cough, headaches, and body aches. For more information on COVID-19 and flu, click on the button below.
