The spring allergy season kicked off early this year, with symptoms such as coughing and sniffling bringing unwanted attention to those affected by the abundance of tree pollen.

And unfortunately, this year's season coincides with the coronavirus outbreak. With the public already on edge about COVID-19, those with seasonal allergies (aka, allergic rhinitis or hay fever), may have a particularly tough time distinguishing their allergy symptoms from a possible coronavirus infection. That is because, much like cold and flu symptoms, signs you are suffering from seasonal allergies can seem very similar to those of COVID-19.

Dr. Changizi Roo from Beijing United Family Hospital will help you to differentiate between coronavirus and seasonal allergies, and to better understand the top 4 concerned issues on seasonal allergies:

  1. Is there a test for seasonal allergies?
  2. How are seasonal allergies treated?
  3. What are the symptoms of seasonal allergies?
  4. Can seasonal allergy symptoms be prevented?

We will also give you a very short introduction about AmCham China's three tailored medical plans for all members:

  1. · Worldwide
  2. · Worldwide (US emergency only)
  3. · Mainland China
