Named symptoms that may indicate infection with Omicron
(ORDO NEWS) — People who become infected with Omicron face completely new symptoms of the disease. These are pain in the back, excessive sweating, nausea and lack of appetite. In addition, it is quite difficult to tell the difference between the common cold and the coronavirus.
A new mutation of COVID-19 can be manifested by quite strong pain in the back. Doctors from South Africa noted that patients often complain of muscle pain, which is most of all disturbing in the lower back. The pain is aching in nature and is constantly present.
Previously, experts did not pay any attention to night sweats, but now it has been classified as one of the most common signs of Omicron. It was also previously mentioned that the new virus is capable of provoking the appearance of problems with the gastrointestinal tract.
The main symptom in this situation is a partial or complete loss of appetite. Medic Sanket Jain said that many patients who enter the hospital begin to complain about the lack of at least a slight appetite. After that, doctors immediately do a PCR test, and if there is a similar symptom, it always gives a positive result.
In turn, Professor Tim Spector, who works at King’s College London, said that such a sign of Omicron as nausea is also very common.
It is worth paying attention to the fact that a new strain of coronavirus has a very short incubation period and literally in a day a person can begin to infect all those with whom he contacts. A feature of Omicron is that it directly affects the cells that are in the upper respiratory tract.
