(BPT) - Flu season is fast approaching even as COVID-19 continues to spread, potentially leading to confusion surrounding symptoms and testing protocols, and mass disruptions in schools, businesses, and transportation. In the northern hemisphere, influenza and respiratory syncytial viruses are common in the autumn and winter months and have overlapping symptoms with SARS-CoV-2. Multiplex PCR technology is an essential component to help manage the upcoming flu season. It’s vitally important to know the similarities and differences between these respiratory viruses, and to get tested regularly to help protect yourself and others.
