Here’s how to tell the difference between coronvirus and seasonal illnesses

first_imgDr. Sumath Balguri, a primary care physician for UHS Primary Care Owego, says there are some similarities between the symptoms of seasonal illnesses such as allergies and the common cold, and the novel coronavirus. Finally, Dr. Balguri said to pay attention to if your symptoms this allergy season are similar to ones you’ve had in years past. “It’s fever… with allergies you don’t see that fever, so if you’re sneezing, but if you do not have a fever, do not have a body ache, sore throat or trouble breathing, it’s more likely you have allergies symptoms than COVID-19,” Balguri told 12 News Friday. (WBNG)– This year there’s even more reason to pay attention to your allergies. He said the symptoms to watch out for are from the eyes and nose; if you have scratchy eyes or are sneezing constantly for example, you are much more likely to have seasonal allergies than coronavirus. While things like fatigue or a headache are common symptoms of several different illnesses, there is one huge difference between coronavirus and seasonal allergies.

RCA backs extension to lunchtime racing trials

first_img SIS may appeal High Court judgement on ARC data rights May 8, 2019 Related Articles Due to take place over a five-week period this Autumn, the Racecourse Association (RCA) has confirmed that a further trial of lunchtime racing is due to take place at five different racecourses.The news follows on from trials which took place earlier this year, which originally consisted of three race meetings during May and June, all of which commenced at midday. The new calendar will see lunchtime racing take place at Redcar, Bangor-on-Dee, Ludlow, Carlisle, and Worcester.Andy Clifton, Racing Director at the Racecourse Association, commented: “The trial of lunchtime racing earlier this year demonstrated that there is an appetite from betting customers for racing at this time of day and I am grateful to all of the racecourses taking part this Autumn.“We wanted to gain further evidence from bookmakers, horsemen, racecourses and racegoers from an extended trial over five consecutive weeks to ascertain whether this might become a more permanent part of the fixture mix moving forward, especially in a time of falling revenues.”The lunchtime trials, supported by the Horseracing Betting Levy Board (HBLB), are hoped to monitor the impact upon turnover of widening the time in which racing is available for betting customers, potentially providing additional income for the sport.As of September 25, one fixture per week will begin at 12:15pm, with the first four races at each fixture taking place at 30-minute intervals.It is hoped that the trials may support both on-course and retail bookmakers.
