Why COVID-19 and Influenza Diagnosis Important in Flu Season?

According to CDC, the US is in a flu epidemic now. Facing a “triple epidemic” of COVID-19, influenza, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) simultaneously. CDC estimates there have been at least 1 600 000 illnesses, 13 000 hospital admissions, and 730 deaths from flu. The medical and health system is facing huge pressure due to the superposition of the “triple epidemic” situation. For COVID-19, influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) share similar symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, and cough, which makes it difficult to identify what pathogen causing the illness. The co-testing approach helps increase testing capacity during the busy flu season and speeds up the time to a diagnosis.
