Colds and flu

Question
Posted by: Annonymous for now | 2020/07/07

Q.

Is the flu in South Africa this year?

I am not feeling entirely well - sore throat, aches and pains, fatigue. Before I panic about Covid, is their evidence of flu in South Africa, and Gauteng specifically, this year?

Hi there

Yes, the normal flu virus is definitely among us, so it is possible to just have the normal flu and not Covid. Hope you feel better soon.
