When you think of the flu, the image comes to mind: a severe and sometimes life-threatening illness that affects your immune system and the way you feel.
But if you think about it a little more, you’ll realize that most of the time, it’s not really the flu.
It’s called an acute respiratory syndrome (ARDS) — short for acute respiratory infection.
While the flu is technically called a coronavirus, there are many different types of ARDS.
It includes colds, coughs, flu, and pneumonia.
It can also cause pneumonia.
The first person diagnosed with ARDS will likely be hospitalized, and they’ll likely spend most of their time in a hospital.
It usually takes a couple of days for symptoms to subside.
In some cases, the infection will remain in your body for months.
In other cases, it can persist for years.
ARDS is not necessarily contagious.
And while it’s possible to contract the virus from someone who’s had it, most people who develop ARDS don’t get sick.
For most people, there’s no evidence that the virus is causing the illness.
However, some people who have it develop it.
Most people who get ARDS have some symptoms that mimic symptoms of flu, including: a cough or sneeze that doesn’t go away
