WSOC TV: How to tell RSV from the flu and COVID-19

If you wake up with fever, aches and a cough, how can you tell if you have the flu, COVID-19 or the virus called RSV, now on the rise? RSV actually peaked during the summer (which is unusual) and is now impacting more adults, especially seniors.

WSOC’s John Paul filed this report December 9, 2021, where he talks to Tryon Medical’s Dr. Ryan Shelton about the difference between symptoms of all three illnesses, and whether you should test for COVID-19 (spoiler alert – YOU SHOULD). 

In partnership with Javara Research, Tryon is working on a clinical trial for a vaccine for RSV. If you are interested in signing up, click here to learn more.
