Bogoch, A researcher at Motts Childrens Hospital in Detroit stressed that colds have nothing to do with the weather. He stated that colds are viruses, that circulate. “They can cause nuisance symptoms like low-grade fever, sneezing, coughing, runny noses, and people generally feeling crummy until it passes.”
“Preventing the cold can be challenging [in colder months], but good hygiene is key,” he said, adding viruses can live on surfaces like doorknobs, keyboards, and elevator buttons.
