November 20, 2020 – Quidel Corporation announced it will sponsor a webinar on Dec. 3 focused on how to correctly diagnose and treat flu, COVID-19 and Lyme disease, which all have similar presentation.
As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CSC), the trio of Lyme disease, flu and COVID-19 share the common symptoms of fever/chills, fatigue, muscle aches and headaches. That makes it both challenging and critical for healthcare professionals to properly distinguish one from the other so that they can correctly treat their patients for the corresponding ailment.
Among those expected to attend the free Dec. 3 webinar are physicians; allied health professionals; health researchers; and representatives of physician offices, laboratories, urgent care centers and others interested in the subject. The webinar, “Doctor, I’m exhausted and have a fever. Do I have COVID? Could it be the flu or even Lyme disease?” will take place from noon-1 p.m. ET.
