Driving the news: Recent survey data found that people infected with COVID-19 from the omicron variant are experiencing various omicron symptoms.
- Headaches are some of the most common COVID-19 symptoms from the omicron variant.
- Nightsweats have also made headlines as a possible omicron variant symptom.
- Vomiting and loss of appetite have also become common omicron variant symptoms, as I reported for the Deseret News.
Quote: “Quite a few of them had nausea, slight temperature, sore throats and headaches,” Tim Spector, a professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London, recently told The Daily Express in the U.K.
Why it matters: The omicron variant symptoms seem so different compared to previous COVID-19 strains, which might make people less inclined to get tested for COVID-19.
What to know: None of these symptoms are the “classic three,” which are often seen as new cough, fever and loss or change to taste and smell, according to The Daily Express.
