It Is Almost Time For Autumn Colds

Colds in summertime can last for weeks, at times seemingly going away and then suddenly storming back with a vengeance, infectious-disease experts say. A winter cold, by contrast, is typically gone in a few days.

And some of the things people commonly do in the summer can prolong the illness, like being physically active and going in and out of air-conditioned buildings.”#
