These are the symptoms of the omicron variant

» ProSalud

King's College London epidemiologist Tim Spector conducts the ZOE COVID study, which investigates the symptoms of the Omicron variant of the Covid-19. Below we share the results of this important study. and how to distinguish the main signs of the new strain of Coronavirus.

What are the 5 symptoms of Omicron?

  1. Nasal fluid
  2. Headache
  3. Sore throat
  4. Fatigue
  5. Sneezing

What are the two new symptoms of Omicron reported in the United Kingdom?

In the last few hours, a couple of symptoms related to the Covid variant, Ómicron, have been reported from the United Kingdom. These are two conditions that could be confused with pain, even common ones. ADVERTISING

This symptom due to the new variant of Covd-19 occurs, as its name suggests, only at night and It is capable of getting people wet to the point of having to wake up to change all their clothes.. It could be accompanied by throat irritation, mild muscle aches, extreme tiredness and a dry cough.

This second symptom is the most worrying because, as it is associated with low back pain, it could be confused with a common back condition., which can be caused by a blow or doing very heavy activities. Thus They recommend following all health measures and even taking a Covid test to rule out possible contagion.

What is the information from the latest study on Omicron symptoms?

This study indicates that Although Omicron has increased rapidly, it is very likely that it will decrease thanks to people changing their habits, such as wear masks, cancel meetings and work from home. Cold-like symptoms are found, which seem to be the main characteristic of Omicron.

If I am vaccinated, can I become infected with the Ómicron variant?

The scientist declared that vaccinated people will continue to get infected, although that does not mean that vaccines are not effective.

How protected are you from Omicron, according to the vaccine you received?

Pfizer has 33% protection against infection, on the other hand, for AstraZeneca Reports from the UK Health Security Agency noted that there was a sharp drop in the effectiveness of the vaccine, as to the Russian Sputnik V vaccine It has been commented that it has a high neutralizing capacity against this variant.

Ómicron vs Delta: what are the differences and symptoms

The reality is that there is not much difference in symptoms between one variant and another. However, there is something that varies, since People who are infected with Ómicron usually do not present loss of taste and smell.

A study carried out in the Netherlands indicates that of those infected with Omicron, only 23 percent lost their taste (41% in the other variant) and 12% smell (unlike 48% with the other variant).

Omicron has a incubation period of 3 days, while Delta needs is 4 to 6 days.
