@InvaderXan Do you have a link to the original image/page? I seem to recall it was this exact image that someone else shared, but they couldn't find the original one (reverse image search doesn't find anything, at least in tineye.com).

@nathan I'm afraid I got it from a nurse on twitter (via a physicist friend), but she seems to have locked her account now, unfortunately. Which is a pity, because she had a bunch of other helpful advice, too.

@alx @nathan I mean, these are just the typical symptoms presented by those three infections.

@InvaderXan @nathan I largely agree, but I think it's a legitimate question to ask with health advice that cites trusted authorities. It's been posted a few times as if it's an official WHO/CDC graphic (or, at least, based on a WHO/CDC summary) and I've yet to see a direct source that connects it to either of them.

@alx @nathan No one with any sense is considering this an official graphic, as it has no logos or official branding. It cites those organisations as sources for the data – by which I mean which symptoms are presented.

And the symptoms of coronavirus are given on the WHO website, while symptoms of the other two common infections are easy to verify. You verified them yourself with that graphic you posted.

@InvaderXan I hear you - I'm sorry if I implied you were presenting the image in a way that you weren't.

The key thing is that it's clear, useful and (as you say) verifiable advice, and I don't want to detract from that.

@alx It's cool, your skepticism is understandable. If any information there wasn't so easily verifiable, I'd be more skeptical myself. But in this case, it seems fairly straightforward, I think.
