Doctors can't tell Covid apart from allergies or the common cold


Covid patients are becoming harder to distinguish from those suffering from allergies or the common cold, doctors say.

The most common symptoms of the so-called virus are now sore throat, sneezing or congestion — the same as RSV, asthma or a pollen allergy.

Dr Erick Eiting, vice chair of operations for emergency medicine at Mount Sinai, New York City, said: 'Just about [every Covid patient] who I've seen has had really mild symptoms.

'The only way that we knew it was Covid was because we happened to be testing them.'

Dr Michael Daignault, an emergency physician in California, added: 'Especially since July, when this recent mini-surge started, younger people that have upper respiratory symptoms... 99 percent of the time they go home with supportive care.'

By upper respiratory symptoms, he was referring to coughs, runny noses, sore throats, fever and chills.

But I'm sure this inconvenient, longstanding truth, won't stop the mainstream media from peddling their fearmongering about "needing" a new lockdown to protect the NHS very soon!
