Most people are comparing the symptoms of the new variant to having a common cold, resulting in mainly panic. However there seems to be about three Omicron symptoms that differ from common cold symptoms.
“They include fever, chills, headache, sore throat, and as it progresses, people will start having cough, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing, Dr. Shoao dold CNS 8.
Good thing is for South Africa, where the Omicron strain was first found; is waning on it’s restrictions. Cases have dulled down however it seems like they’ve passed the fourth wave to other countries, including the U.S.
“All indicators suggest the country may have passed the peak of the fourth wave at a national level,” the government said in a statement Thursday, adding that the risk of infection remains “given the high transmissibility of the omicron variant.”
Recently, the CDC investigated patients who were unvaxxed and vaxxed. They concluded that vaccinated people have a chance of being re-infected; with four of them getting vaxed. Additionally, the CDC’s research suggests a spread of Omicron within three days after the incubation; compared to five days with the other COVID strains.
