Cough and Cold.

Rhinovirus is the most common pathogen responsible for Common Cold and Flu. Apart from this one there are 200 different strains of viruses contributing to this condition.

Common cold impacts every one of us. On an average, it affects the children almost 8 to 12 times a year and an adult 4 to 8 times a year. The life of these viruses extends from 2 to 4 days. This is not fatal.

In the current time there are fair chances that many of you would get affected by common cold and flu. Please don’t feel panicked in this season of COVID19. Get yourselves tested but remember that it is not necessary that you are infected with COVID19.

Above information is in the best health interest of all of us.

Stay safe.
