Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


The common cold (cold) and influenza (the flu) are viral infections of the upper respiratory tract. They have many overlapping symptoms. Both are acute illnesses, highly contagious and spread by respiratory droplets; and affect people of all ages. Pharmacists are ideally placed to assist individuals to manage their symptoms and provide education to minimise the spread of infection.
