Know the Differences in Symptoms of Omicron Stealth and Ordinary Omicron, Which is Worse? – After the appearance of Omicron, now another variant of Covid-19 has emerged which is commonly called the stealth Omicron. Although both are Omicron, they both have different symptoms. You can read about the different symptoms of stealth and ordinary Omicron in this article.

Common Omicron symptoms, as may have been discussed in many other articles in various media, are fever, cough, headache, runny nose, itchy throat, night sweats, prolonged fatigue, and experiencing muscle aches in many parts of the body.

Then what about the Omicron Stealth Symptoms?

In addition to these general symptoms, specifically some of these Omicron patients also have a tendency to experience various disorders related to digestion. Until the time this article was written, there was no definite explanation as to why this happened.

Changes in Symptom Trends

While the previous variants of Covid-19 more often infect the nose, mouth, and lungs, this stealth Omicron variant has a tendency to infect the intestines. These changes are thought to be due to mutations that occur naturally, and must be watched out for by everyone.

In addition to disturbances in the intestine, because this sub-variant directly infects that part, the dominant symptoms that existed in the previous Covid-19 also began to disappear. Loss of sense of smell and sense of taste, as well as shortness of breath is no longer found.

At the same time, it becomes increasingly difficult for health workers to detect them, because they are more difficult to detect. As a result, transmission can be faster and the risk of complications can increase because Omicron stealth tends to live longer in the digestive tract.

Strict Procedures Must Be Executed

Because of the difference between the symptoms of the stealth and ordinary Omicron, strict procedures must be re-applied. Wearing masks, washing hands, and several other protocols must be re-applied so as to minimize the risk of transmission.

That was a little explanation regarding the different symptoms of stealth and ordinary Omicron. Hopefully it can be useful information, and happy carrying out activities again.
