Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

This is not flu

It is a viral infection

Some symptoms are similar to flu

Till date there is no role of vitamins D and C

It does not seems seasonal as it is surviving in extreme weather conditions too

It may not end completely as you may have heard from the World Health Organization

Till date there is no effective treatment and no vaccine as well

Please do let me know if you have any other question
