The ‘cold season’ has arrived; should you stay at home if you get sick? Dr. Hilary’s recommendation.
As we are now in the regular “cold season,” DR HILARY verified that “plenty of colds are out there.” What should you do if you get sick because the symptoms are identical to Covid? A sore throat, blocked or runny nose, headaches, and muscle aches are all symptoms of the common cold. It’s time to take a fast flow test as soon as you start to feel under the weather. But, if the coronavirus fast flow tests come back negative, can you resume your normal routine? “It’s fine to go out unless you’re extremely sick,” Dr Hilary remarked on Good Morning Britain (GMB).
Dr Hilary’s suggestion for everyone with a fever, however, is “totally different” and was posted on Tuesday, October 12.
Dr Hilary advises those who have a fever, are “constitutionally sick,” and can’t get out of bed to “remain in bed.”
To “protect everyone else,” anyone with a “hacking cough and are visibly infectious with a bad dosage of flu” should “stay home.”
“Of course we should go to work,” Dr Hilary said of a “simple cold.”
He went on to say, “We need colds to maintain the immune system [up].” “We need to strengthen our defenses.” Getting “minor” colds can help people regain immunity lost during the lockdowns.
Dr. Hilary scoffed at the idea that Britons are suffering from the “worse colds ever.”
“[People] can’t recall what it’s like to have a cold because they’ve been wearing masks and socially separating,” Dr Hilary explained.
People are claiming that this is the “worst cold ever,” but it isn’t — there are plenty other colds around.
“Unless you’re really ill, it’s fine to go out with a cold,” Dr Hilary said, noting that it’s “cold season right now as we approach winter.”
The typical cold develops gradually, with symptoms such as:The NHS recommends that individuals rest and sleep, stay warm, and drink plenty of water to help them recover from a cold.
While pain relievers like paracetamol or ibuprofen can help to lower a fever and relieve aches and pains, antibiotics aren’t required.
“Antibiotics are not recommended for colds since they will not relieve your symptoms or speed up your recovery,” according to the NHS.
“Antibiotics are only effective against bacterial infections, while viruses are the cause of colds.”
