What to expect from the BA. 2 omicron variant: The omicron variant’s subvariant — the BA.2 variant — has been spreading in recent weeks as normal omicron variant symptoms have dwindled, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
- Spokane Regional Health District Health Officer Francisco Velazquez told KREM 2 News that dizziness and fatigue are unique COVID-19 symptoms that people are experiencing from the BA.2 variant.
- Long COVID-19 describes the symptoms people feel weeks to months after their initial COVID-19 infection.
- “You will likely know once you start to feel better that you are recovering from COVID. However, some symptoms — such as cough, loss of smell or taste, headaches, nausea, dizziness, and muscle pains — can linger for weeks or months after major symptoms subside. The severity of symptoms will differ for each person, so it’s important to seek medical attention if any symptoms persist or worsen more than a few days after they begin.”
