    Understanding Influenza and COVID-19

    Influenza and COVID-19 can cause severe illness and death, particularly among vulnerable populations such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. The high mortality rate associated with COVID-19 has been a major public health concern. 

    These diseases affect the upper respiratory tract and their clinical epidemiology is similar. The World Health Organization reports billions of cases of both annually. Among these cases, there are roughly 290,000 to 650,000 influenza-related deaths. 

    It is essential to ensure that the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases are done properly to prevent avoidable morbidity and mortality. Orange Health Labs provides a comprehensive influenza panel test in Mumbai for these diseases to help with this mission.

    Timely testing & its impact on early detection & prevention of influenza flu

    The simultaneous occurrence of influenza and COVID-19 presents a dual dilemma for healthcare professionals as it becomes difficult to differentiate between these two conditions. 

    It is important to note that while influenza can display diverse symptoms, approximately 4% to 28% of influenza cases might exhibit no symptoms at all. Also, apart from vaccination, efficient control of the flu and prompt antiviral treatment, preferably within 48 hours of symptom onset, play a critical role in reducing the influence of the flu, especially in the context of COVID-19. This requires early detection and management of the condition to prevent a substantial number of fatalities.

    Orange Health Labs offers influenza diagnostic tests that enable the timely identification of infections, contributing to the prevention of the condition.  

    Timely treatment, isolation, and disease control of influenza flu 

    Influenza and COVID-19 are extremely contagious illnesses and need efficient monitoring and quick diagnosis for their effective treatment and control. It's advisable to start antiviral drugs as soon as possible and vaccinate, particularly for individuals who are at risk of severe complications. Self-isolation is a crucial measure in mitigating the spread of these diseases. 

    Various flu panel test or COVID-19 tests can be conducted to confirm the presence of the flu or COVID-19  as part of the diagnostic process. The spread of disease can be controlled via effective monitoring, testing, isolation, and prompt treatment.

    Unpacking virus symptoms and modes of transmission

    The flu, commonly referred to as influenza, can lead to varying degrees of illness, and in some instances, even fatalities. Typically, flu symptoms appear abruptly.

    Individuals affected by the flu may encounter one or more of the following signs: a sore throat, cough, fever, or the sensation of being feverish/chills, headaches, fatigue (feeling tired), a runny or congested nose, and muscle or body aches. While vomiting and diarrhoea can also manifest, these symptoms are primarily observed in children. It's crucial to emphasize that not everyone with the flu will necessarily experience a fever.  


    The onset of flu symptoms usually takes more than one day, but it's also possible to have the flu without displaying any noticeable signs of illness. People infected with the flu remain contagious for up to 7 days after the onset of their illness. The transmission of the disease occurs when an infected individual coughs, sneezes, or even talks, releasing respiratory droplets that can be inhaled by a healthy person. 

    Eligibility to get an influenza panel test

    Individuals experiencing flu-like symptoms, travellers, and those with compromised immune systems can all find value in the influenza panel test. Those at an elevated risk of contracting influenza include young children, individuals over 65, expectant mothers, and people with conditions such as asthma, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, cancer, or heart issues and are thus recommended influenza screening test. This test is also beneficial for anyone who has had close contact with an infected individual and individuals displaying symptoms.

    Comprehensive Examination of the Viruses in the Package: H3N2, H1N1, Influenza A, Influenza B, and COVID-19

    Orange Health Labs provides a comprehensive influenza test in Mumbai. It is a set of five tests designed to identify viral infections, including H1N1, Influenza A, Influenza B, H3N2, and COVID-19.  

    Influenza, resulting from the influenza virus, can be categorized into three primary types: Influenza A, B, and C. Influenza A and B follow a seasonal pattern, with more severe symptoms that tend to peak during winter. Conversely, Influenza C generally produces milder symptoms and its occurrence remains relatively steady throughout the year. Subtypes of influenza A include H1N1, commonly referred to as the "swine flu" and H3N2. In contrast, COVID-19 emerged in 2019 following the identification of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. 

    These infections are detected using throat and nasal swabs. Failure in detecting and treating these viruses can potentially result in more serious complications like pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, or ear infections. This risk is particularly increased among individuals with weakened immune systems, the elderly, or young children. It is crucial to prioritize seeking medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms. 

    Objectives and benefits of the influenza profile test in Mumbai

    The primary goal of undergoing the comprehensive influenza panel test package is to swiftly identify infections and allow for prompt care, leading to better treatment outcomes.  

    Distinguishing between flu and COVID-19 based solely on symptoms is challenging, as they share some common symptoms. Accurate diagnosis requires specific testing. A laboratory test is capable of detecting both flu and COVID-19 and can be used to expedite diagnosis and treatment. Early treatment for either virus can lower the risk of severe illness. Further, it enables the prevention of potential complications such as pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, ear infections, and more.
