Discover if you have the flu or a cold by examining your symptoms

What is the difference between cold and flu?

While the common cold and the influenza virus are two distinct types of illnesses, their symptoms are similar and at times very difficult to distinguish. The flu is a viral infection caused by a single respiratory virus (influenza), while a cold is caused by the adenovirus or the coronavirus and its many highly variable subsets. As such, the oft-heard expression that “there is no cure for the common cold” is completely true, while the single strain of virus that causes the flu can be prevented with a vaccine.
