The common cold is a viral infection that affects your throat and nose. The common cold can occur at any time of the year, but it is most common during the winter, fall, and spring. Most people can recover from a common cold on their own within two weeks. However, some people may require medical attention if their symptoms don’t improve with time.
In short, it’s more because of the increased vulnerability to common cold viruses than their presence, which is much higher during winters, that causes the secondary peak in the common cold cases during the springtime.
