Coronavirus vs Flu (Influenza)
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Coronavirus vs Flu (Influenza)?
let’s talk about some unique differences
between the influenza virus the flu and the covid-19 which is the coronavirus
what are the differences what are the similarities now let’s first talk about
the symptoms with the flu virus you have more achiness fatigue chills and
headaches now you’re also going to get those symptoms over here too but not as
severe what’s unique about the coronavirus is that you’re gonna get more
shortness of breath and difficulty breathing
both of these viruses will present with fever dry cough respiratory symptoms and
there’s no difference between the transmission it’s transmitted the same
through sneezing coughing in contact now with the flu virus it comes faster
abruptly between 1 and 2 days with the covid-19 the symptoms are a little more
gradual between three to seven days now the deaths from the flu usually occur
not all the time from secondary bacterial pneumonia and
heart attacks now with the corona virus the deaths are
mainly from something called ARDS acute respiratory distress syndrome this is
the respiratory condition where the lungs fill up with fluid and it makes it
almost impossible to breathe this condition was also very common in the
Spanish flu of 1918 what worse in those cases back then was the fact that they
not only had ARDS but they also took massive doses of aspirin and they didn’t
know the toxicity back then and that just made things a lot worse now with
the flu virus the targets the elderly people with a weak immune system or
someone has a chronic health problem diabetes obesity heart disease etc it
also targets children and pregnant women whereas in the coronavirus the target
is the elderly 70 80 plus years old and people with pre-existing health problems
believe it or not obesity is a high risk diabetes high blood pressure people with
autoimmune disease basically people with a weakened
immune system but it doesn’t necessarily target children or pregnant women based
on the CDC estimates very recently between October 2019 through March 7th
2020 these are the estimates this is in the US alone 51 million people got
infected with the flu 24 million medical visits 670,000 hospitalized and 55
thousand people died now worldwide the estimates were between 250,000 to
500,000 people died between this time period which is about five months now if
we compare this data to the coronavirus data and we’re gonna talk just worldwide
we had 200,000 cases so just look at this right here
200,000 cases 251 million cases and the deaths currently are 8,246 but I do
want to just have you take a look compare this number right here to 55,000
that’s in the US but the true comparison should be worldwide because we want to
compare apples to apples between 250,000 to 500,000 people died versus a little
more than 8,000 now I’m not trying to minimize this and I’m not saying this is
not going to grow but I just want you to look at these numbers to compare them
there’s a big big difference now 82,000 people recovered from the covid-19 so far
we have a hundred seven thousand which haven’t fully recovered yet but they
have a mild condition and then we have 6,000 that are critical here’s what I
would do if I were you the fact that it attacks people with a weakened immune
system is very good data there is a lot of elderly people with a strong immune
system and they are not as susceptible so really the key is strengthening your
own defense mechanism which is your army so it can defend against the enemy which
is the virus so it really boils down to creating more
health in your body taking the right nutrients check out this video on how to
boost your immune system

4:03 What I would do
Today we’re going to talk about the coronavirus vs. flu differences and similarities.
Flu vs. coronavirus symptoms:
• Shortness of breath
• Difficulty breathing
The flu and the coronavirus share some symptoms, such as:
• Dry cough
• Respiratory symptoms
Both the flu and the coronavirus can be transmitted the same way. A few ways they can be transmitted are:
Coronavirus vs. flu onset:
• The flu comes on very quickly, often between one and two days.
• The coronavirus symptoms come on more gradually between three to seven days.
Coronavirus vs. flu death rates:
• Typically occur from secondary bacterial pneumonia and heart attacks.
• Typically occur from ARDS
Coronavirus vs. flu—Whose at risk?
• The flu virus targets the elderly, people with a weak immune system, people with a chronic health problem, children, and pregnant women.
• The coronavirus targets the elderly and people with pre-existing health problems.
Coronavirus vs. flu recent CDC estimates (October 2019-March 7th 2020):
Influenza in the USA alone:
• 51 million infections
• 24 million medical visits
• 670,000 hospitalizations
• 55,000 deaths
• Worldwide – 250,000-500,000 deaths
• 200,000 cases
• 8,246 deaths
• 82,000 recoveries
• 107,000 mild cases
• 6,000 critical cases
At this time, I would do whatever I can to strengthen my immune system. I would create more health in my body and take the right nutrients.
