The Flu Vs. COVID-19, Info-graphics from the Louisiana Department of Health

The Louisiana Department of Health has shared info-graphics to explain the difference between the common flu and COVID-19.

 
 

“As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve, comparisons have been drawn to influenza. Both cause respiratory disease, yet there are important differences between the two viruses.

 

Both COVID-19 and influenza are respiratory illnesses, but COVID-19 has a higher chance of infecting more people. COVID-19 is also more likely to result in severe and critical infections than the flu.

 

Mortality for COVID-19 also appears higher than for the flu. Finally, no known cures or vaccines currently exist for COVID-19.
