Covid-19 Cases in the UK Rise, Experts Leak Omicron Symptoms Most Sufferers Experience

Suara.com – The Omicron variant of the corona virus is still spreading in various parts of the world. In fact, this latest variant gives rise to sub-variants, namely BA.1 and BA.2.

While not as deadly as the Delta variant, the Omicron strain is highly contagious. This has even led to a spike in Covid-19 cases in several countries, one of which is the UK.

According to the UK Health Secretary, an increase in cases had been predicted as many Covid-19 restrictions were lifted and people were moving freely again.

This increase in cases made the head of the application ZOE, an application that records Covid-19 symptoms from the UK, open his voice.

“It is predicted that cases will rise again for the first time in weeks,” said Tim Spector on his YouTube channel.

In addition, based on ZOE data, Spector revealed a common symptom of Covid-19 Omicron experienced by British people, namely a runny nose.

“A runny nose occurs in almost 80 percent of all cases,” he continued Times of India.

According to Spector, this indicates that the Omicron variant greatly affects the nose.

Runny nose or rhinorrhea occurs when the nose produces excessive secretions, which can be clear and watery or thick mucus. It is usually associated with conditions such as rhinitis, nasal or sinus infections.

– Sore throat, may be accompanied by itching
– Headache
– Continuous cough
– muffled sound
– Night sweats and cold
– Fatigue and body and joint pain

Although mild, the Omicron variant and other types of SARS-CoV-2 can still cause severe complications in vulnerable groups who are at high risk.
