Did you know...

A strong sneeze can travel the length of a bus or tube carriage and you can pick up a cold or flu by inhaling infected droplets from someone else's sneeze in this kind of environment.

Symptoms of a cold include cough, nasal congestion, sore throat and earache, and they may last longer than you think. It usually starts with earache and a sore throat followed by more severe cold and flu symptoms such as fever and runny/blocked nose and ending with a lingering cough.1
