Respiratory illnesses are a common occurrence in the fall and winter, with seasonal cases of COVID-19, influenza, strep throat, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) likely increasing over the next few months.
Because RSV and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are both types of respiratory viruses, some symptoms can be similar. In children, COVID-19 often results in mild symptoms such as fever, runny nose, and cough. For adults with COVID-19, symptoms may be more severe and may include trouble breathing. If you have symptoms of a respiratory illness, your doctor may recommend testing for COVID-19.
