Como Covid testing is scaled back, it’s key that you know the early warning signs of Omicron.

Health officials say there are two sintomas of BA.2 that are not always seen in patients infected with other variants.

Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD), em Washington, announced last week that people should look for dizziness and fatigue when trying to decipher if they have caught BA.2.

The symptoms were common in BA.2 cases, based on collected data, Medical Daily relatado.

SRHD health officer Francisco Velazquez said it is crucial to monitor symptoms, especially the two newly reported ones.

But since they are not specific and could come from other conditions and diseases, he encouraged everyone to get vaccinated and boosted to lower the risk of infection.

People still associate Covid disease with a persistent cough, loss of smell and/or taste, and a high temperature.

While these still occur, the symptoms of the virus have largely changed due to new variants, and the effect of vaccination.

Fatigue and dizziness also occur with other strains, such as Delta and the original virus from Wuhan.

But reports suggest it is more common in BA.1 than ever beforeand may be the first warning sign after infection.

BA.2 is spreading faster than any other strain before it, early data suggest.

Crucially, there is no signal that Omicron variants cause more severe disease. Multiple studies have shown BA.1 is more mild than Delta, and it’s thought this is the case for BA.2 as well.

But Professor Adrian Esterman, an epidemiologist and former World Health Organisation expert, has warned cases are going toskyrocket”.

He wrote on Twitter: “Omicron BA.2 is about 1.4 times more infectious than BA.1.

“The basic reproduction number (R0) for BA.1 is about 8.2, making R0 for BA.2 about 12.

“This makes it pretty close to measles, the most contagious disease we know about.”

Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”

Spending just 15 minutes with someone who has the measles is enough to spread it.

People who have previously had Covid are still at risk of getting the new variant, called a reinfection.


Brits who have tested positive for the bug have been logging their symptoms on the ZOE Covid Study App.
