Persons suffering from the common cold and upper respiratory tract infections have similar symptoms and it is difficult to differentiate between COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases having the same symptoms. To avoid mixing patients with these symptoms, other diseases a separate clinic has been established in Railway Hospitals of SWR with a separate team of Doctors, Nurse, Paramedical staff and Pharmacists with Personal Protective Equipment, according to an SWR release here on Monday.
