Recent Covid-19 symptoms
Since tracking Omicron and its variant are quite confusing and overwhelming, you need to pay more attention to it. “Among all Covid variants, an Omicron mutant possesses one of the highest transmissibility. According to studies, this mutant has a R0 value of about 10-18.6, meaning that each person infected with it has a chance of infecting 10-18.6 people nearby, according to Dr Vikrant Shah, a consulting doctor, intensivist, and infectious disease specialist at Zen Multispeciality Hospital, Chembur, Mumbai.
In the first wave of Covid-19, common symptoms included loss of smell and taste, a high fever, and shortness of breath. Now, the symptoms of Covid-19 have changed. The following are the typical symptoms of the new Omicron subvariants:
- Fever with a dry cough
- Respiratory tract infection with a runny nose
- Uncomfortable sore throat muscles
- Husky voice
Dr Shah says, “Omicron and its sub-variants tend to induce more upper respiratory symptoms than older variations like Delta, which damages the lungs. Congestion, a sore throat, and changes in taste and smell can be some of the examples of these symptoms.”
