Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Different morbidities can have similar symptoms but require very different treatments.

Treating symptoms is first aid. Often it helps. But if you don't understand the underlying condition you're going to miss treatment opportunities at best, while at worst you're in danger of making lethal mistakes.

CV-19 is different because there's no reliable treatment for now, so the only medical option is intensive first aid. But test/trace is still very, very important for controlling the spread.
