What is the difference between Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19?

Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. COVID-19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus (called SARS-CoV-2) and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses. Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis. Flu and COVID-19 share many characteristics, but there are some key differences between the two.

While more is learned every day, there is still a lot that is unknown about COVID-19 and the virus that causes it. This page compares COVID-19 and flu, given the best available information to date.

Signs and Symptoms

Similarities:

Both COVID-19 and flu can have varying degrees of signs and symptoms, ranging from no symptoms (asymptomatic) to severe symptoms. Common symptoms that COVID-19 and flu share include:

  • Fever or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue (tiredness)
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle pain or body aches
  • Headache
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults

COVID-19

Other signs and symptoms of COVID-19, different from flu, may include change in or loss of taste or smell.

DHSS reinforces continued message of importance of using COVID-19 prevention measures during gatherings

JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Fall weather has arrived, and although the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) encourages taking activities outdoors during the COVID-19 pandemic, this does not imply that prevention measures should be ignored. 

“As Gov. Parson and I say each week, COVID-19 is still here among us,” said Dr. Randall Williams, director of DHSS. “We want people to be able to engage in enjoyable activities, but do so safely to avoid the virus being spread which will only lead to more illness and social isolation.” 

Williams continually reminds Missourians to practice social distancing. “Remaining 6 feet apart from others continues to be very important today, just like it was in the beginning of this,” he said. “If you can’t maintain this distance from others, be sure to wear a mask.” Williams also stresses the importance of proper handwashing or the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 

DHSS recently launched a series of public service announcements that tell the unique firsthand stories of Missourians who have survived COVID-19. They are sharing their stories to help reduce stigma surrounding the virus and those who contract it. 

Additional videos and graphics can be found within the DHSS COVID-19 resource toolkit. Learn more about COVID-19 and how to stay safe at health.mo.gov/coronavirus.
