New Delhi : After the deadly Delta variant, Omicron variant is spreading in most countries like a wildfire. The new variant is much more transmissible than the other variants of coronavirus. India has reported more than 1700 cases of Omicron variant with most number in Maharashtra.

Since it is highly transmissible, the threat is also on a large scale with the variant. Another major trouble is that the variant has infected people who are fully vaccinated too.

What are the symptoms of Omicron?

If you are having cold-like conditions such as sniffles, headaches, and tiredness. you are likely to be positive for Covid’s Omicron variant. While the Omicron variant is “mild”, the new symptoms include nausea and loss of appetite, according to a Zoe Covid app study.

According to the UK’s NHS, the symptoms of coronavirus generally include “a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste”, the Daily Express reported.

Meanwhile, many omicron infected people were found to be asymptomatic or with mild symptoms.

According to Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London, these are common symptoms in those who tend to be double-jabbed or even boosted.

“Quite a few of them had nausea, slight temperature, sore throats and headaches,” he was quoted as saying.

The four most common symptoms of the omicron variant are cough, fatigue, congestion and runny nose, according to a CDC analysis of the first 43 cases investigated in the US. In some cases, vomiting has also been reported as a symptom among those with the variant, the report said.

Recent studies have claimed that the latest variant of coronavirus is less deadly and the number of hospitalizations are also less.
