- upper respiratory issues such as congestion, runny nose and headache seem to be more prevalent.
- It may seem like a very bad cold – and it is very contagious.
- The illness should not be brushed off as just a cold.
- Respiratory droplets emitted from coughs and sneezes can infect other, more vulnerable, people.
- Cases that start off mild can worsen and become more serious.
Vaccination remains the best protection against severe illness from COVID-19 and hospitalization.
