COVID-19, Flu, and Common Colds: Tell the Difference

Are you coughing and showing some flu-like symptoms? If you’re not sure whether you have COVID-19, flu, or just a common cold, then knowing the difference in their symptoms can help. These three are all respiratory illnesses and can be transmitted from one person to the next. Experts at Ritecare Medical Center in Hialeah discussed the differences between the three: Fever, cough, and shortness of breath According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fever, cough, and shortness of breath are three of the most common symptoms of COVID-19. FEVER: Dr. John Williams, of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Children’s Hospital, says that COVID-19 fever may develop in the late afternoon or early evening. The fever is also above 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit as anything lower than that is not a symptom of a virus infection.  COUGH: Dry cough that feels too tight on your chest is a symptom of COVID-19.

SHORTNESS OF BREATH: This symptom is a serious one and you must immediately call your healthcare provider or 911. If it’s persistent, you may suffer from hypoxia or decreased oxygen in the tissues.

Body aches and fatigue Some COVID-19 patients reported having body aches. This symptom, however, is more common to colds and flu patients. Many COVID-19 patients also reported feeling tired, like their body has been depleted of energy, so they sleep...

Commonly Abused Drugs in the United States: Part 2

There are around 30 million people over the age of 12 who have been using illegal drugs in America, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). This means that roughly 10% of the population in the United States are drug users.  Drug addiction impacts families, social relationships and a user’s performance at work, or in school, but some drugs can be more addictive than others. For this reason, employers are mandated to require their employees to undergo drug tests as part of the employment screening process.

Commonly Abused Drugs In the first part of this blog series, we have discussed the first four of America’s most commonly abused drugs. These include: MethamphetamineAnabolic steroidClub drugsCocaine Now, we continue to tackle the remaining four: 5. Marijuana Marijuana, a mixture of dried leaves, flowers, and seeds from the Cannabis plant, may be used as a psychoactive drug and a medicinal alternative. Its addictive element is derived from the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabino (THC) content and it’s commonly referred to as “pot” or “grass” in street language.  Because marijuana is legal in some states, its use has been more acceptable, especially for medicinal purposes. However, the rate of marijuana addiction has been growing. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 30% of marijuana users, or about 4.2 million people, develop a disorder, or over-dependence to the substance. 6. Painkillers, or Prescription Drugs Opioids like Vicodin, Percocet, and Oxycontin are just some of the...
