Argentina is going through the third wave of coronavirus. Thus, the new Omicron variant banished the Delta and is now dominant. Although we still do not have much information about it, experts work day and night to learn from it and thanks to this, they found that it presents various symptoms that could not be detected in previous strains.
The variants passed along with the Delta, were easy to identify with symptoms that included continuous cough, fever, and especially loss of taste and/or smell. Now Omicron seems to “camouflage” much better. Scientists found that some signs can be mistaken for a cold or the flu.
The United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) says that people infected with coronavirus can have a wide range of symptoms which can range from a stuffy nose to breathing difficulties that require immediate medical attention.
The WHO does not rule out that Omicron is the last variant: “The more it circulates, the greater the risk of a new, more deadly one”
The WHO assures that there could be a new variant of the coronavirus that is “more deadly than omicron”
Meanwhile, the variant Omicron, presents a quite peculiar symptom and different from the other, focusing on what we do in the bathroom. From the CDC they warned that diarrhea could be a sign that we have caught the strain. It is necessary to emphasize that it is not the only symptom. According to recently published data, Omicron produces milder disease than the Delta variant, especially in those who are vaccinated.
48 hours after infection, these are the signs that usually appear:
– Irritation or sore throat
– Runny nose
– Low back pain
– Night sweats
– Muscle pains.
Finally, infrequently, it can produce lack of appetite and skin rash. Of the latter, two types have been detected so far. In addition, and unusually, it can cause red eye or conjunctivitis and hair loss.
