【Differentiate COVID & Flu】Doctors suggest COVID/Flu A&B tests for accurate detection

In light of the latest COVID variant and flu season, a surge of doctor appointment has been recorded over the last 2 weeks. Some doctors have recently noticed a rise in flu cases and the ratio of COVID to FLU A infections has become 3:2, while around 10% of patients had contracted both COVID and FLU A. Worried about your health? Let’s check out more anti-epidemic advices from doctors below.

Symptoms and Treatments of FLU A and COVID

Fever, fatigue, cough, sore throat, headache, runny nose, shortness of breath, muscle pain, loss of smell/taste, red swollen eyes, skin rashes
Fever, fatigue, cough, sore throat, headache, runny nose, stuffy nose, shortness of breath, muscle pain, diarrhea, nausea
TreatmentElderly and chronic disease patients may take COVID-19 oral drugsPatients with severe symptoms should take antiviral medication prescribed by doctors in the first 48 hours

Mutual complications of flu and COVID-19 include pneumonia, respiratory failure, acute dyspnea syndrome, septicemia, thromboembolism/multiple organ failure, worsening chronic disease, myocarditis and encephalitis etc. However, 10-20% of COVID-19 patients may experience “long covid”. Findings have also suggested that COVID and flu coinfection is 6 times more deadly and is more likely to cause severe illness and complications than being infected only with COVID.

3-in-1 Rapid COVID/FLU A&B Tests Can Assist Doctors’ Diagnosis

Considering the very similar symptoms of FLU A and COVID, some doctors may use 3-in-1 rapid tests (also known as ABC rapid tests) to determine patients’ COVID and FLU infection status. Through collecting patients’ nasal sample, 3-in-1 test kits can detect the presence of antigen of FLU A (A), FLU B (B), or COVID (C) viruses, allowing doctors to make quicker and more accurate diagnosis easily.

Therefore, doctors also recommend the public to perform self-test with 3-in-1 rapid COVID/FLU A&B tests, and present the test results to their doctors for accurate treatment when feeling sick.

User Feedback: Results in 15 mins – Present Result at Consultation

A user of 3-in-1 rapid test previously reported to have experienced headache and coughing. With the help of INDICAID™ COVID-19/FLU A&B Rapid Antigen Test, she was able to detect a positive FLU A result in just 15 minutes. She later presented the test kit result to her doctor and received antiviral treatment.

The ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘CoV’ indicators on the test device can clearly show the infection status of different viruses.
