The looming spring hay fever season is set to pose a new challenge for healthcare workers, as pollen from ryegrass, ragweed and Paterson’s Curse fills the air and sets off allergic reactions. That means GPs will have to be on alert to differentiate those with hay fever from suspected COVID patients. Dr Kavitha Sooriyakumar, Senior registrar - allergy and immunology department in the UK explains the differences between symptoms of hay fever and COVID-19. Produced by Praba Maheswaran.
