Does My Child Have COVID-19 or the Stomach Flu?
COVID-19 and the stomach flu can both present with gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Here’s how to tell the difference between them, according to experts. Your child looks exhausted and starts complaining of abdominal pain. Or maybe they’re feeling nauseous and request the dreaded barf bucket. You might’ve previously written off these symptoms as a stomach bug, but these days, you’re apt to wonder: Do they actually have COVID-19? After all, the coronavirus sometimes presents with gastrointestinal (GI) issues like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, according to the Centers for Disease Control of Prevention (CDC).
