Omicron variant – two signs that appear in vaccinated persons

The Omicron variant has brought about a daily increase in coronavirus cases worldwide.

Scientists and researchers have now been able to identify the symptoms of this highly transmitted type. People who test positive for Omicron are also self-reporting warning signs.

Most people are now familiar with the original COVID-19-related symptoms, which detail cough, fever, and loss or vary in taste or smell. However, the new Omicron variant seems to be causing slightly different symptoms that you may not have heard of before.

Since the NHS website lists only the three original symptoms, it can be difficult to relate the signs that bother you to the new type. This is why being aware of the symptoms displayed can help you spot it and protect others.

Symptom research comes from a variety of sources, including scientists and the ZOE COVID Study app. The ZOE app has been monitoring the rise of infections in London, collecting data from its users about new Omicron-related signs.

While half of the people who tested positive reported suffering from the original coronavirus symptoms, the other half experienced different signs. Two symptoms of Omicron appear include loss of appetite and vomiting. The ZOE COVID Study app has shared loss of appetite as a “common symptom” of the new infection.

This was concluded based on the reports of the application contributors, detailing that this sign related to eating will be prevalent. Vomiting is listed by Tim Spector, a professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London. The professor said of the patients with Omicron: “Many of them had nausea, mild fever, sore throat and headache.”

Spector added that vomiting and loss of appetite tend to appear with double blows and even intensify.

But the five main symptoms associated with the new variant appear to be:

  • Throat scratching;
  • Mild muscle pain;
  • Extreme fatigue;
  • Dry cough;
  • Sweating at night.
