We started with influenza and now we're talking about the common cold. Not the same thing.


No they aren't the same thing but the methods of infectivity aren't all that different.

Respiratory viruses; influenza and rhinoviruses included, essentially employ similar mechanisms for infectivity and spread.
Both are bound by the constraints of biology and environmental issues.

I'd give more information to Elan on these issues including antiviral drugs that can protect, but Elan doesn't find my posts of any value.
