Covid-19 and flu show similar symptoms
Do I have Corona? Or did I already have it without really realizing it? These questions can only be answered clearly with a corona test or antibody test.

Coronavirus can also cause conjunctivitis
If patients have only conjunctivitis and no other symptoms, this indicates a crown infection in the rarest of cases. If there were also other symptoms of corona, such as fever, cough and shortness of breath, the suspicion of infection would be reinforced – especially if the patient or his contact person was traveling recently or in contact with people already infected with the coronavirus.
American ophthalmologists have so far assumed that the virus can also get into the eyes through the air and cause an infection. At the annual German Ophthalmic Society (DOG) virtual meeting, however, ophthalmologists came to the conclusion that infection with Sars-CoV-2 across the surface of the eye is highly unlikely. This reports the “Ärztezeitung”. But you must protect them anyway, because there is not a completely clean system.
