flu and corona fever difference and their symptoms in hindi

Your body temperature is considered normal when it hovers around 98.6°F. However, the normal range may vary depending on several factors like the food we consume, our sleeping patterns and the physical activities we perform. When there is an increase in body temperature, it is known as fever, medically termed as pyrexia. Commonly, fever is caused by a bacterial or viral infection. Actually, it is not a disease in itself but a symptom of underlying ailments or infections. Your body temperature rises when your immune system works hard to fight pathogens like bacteria or viruses.

Severe bacterial infections account for about 10% of all fevers in newborns. The infections drop to 5% among children less than 3 years of age, and further decrease to 0.5% to 1% in older infants and toddlers.
