Viral or Bacterial Infection?

The symptoms can be very similar.

An acute respiratory infection, typically presenting as cough, cold, sore throat, and runny nose, is the most common single reason for visiting a doctor and antibiotic prescriptions.1-5 Clinical diagnosis can be a challenge due to similar signs and symptoms of bacterial and viral infections.

Most coughs, colds, sore throats, runny noses and earaches are caused by viruses and do not require antibiotics.1,6-7 Antibiotic resistance is a major global health threat contributing to hundreds of thousands of deaths globally.8

Patients with viral infections should be cohorted appropriately in order to reduce the spread of infection. Accurate detection of a viral infection can help prioritize which patients should have pathogen-specific testing performed.
