The ZOE COVID Study, which has analyzed thousands of COVID-19 cases and reported on symptoms of those cases, has revealed the top symptoms for people who were infected with the coronavirus at the time when the omicron variant likely started to spread, according to CNBC.
The symptoms appeared to be similar to other coronavirus variants. Here’s a look at the top five symptoms:
- Runny nose.
- Fatigue (either mild or severe).
- Sore throat.
- “Things like fever, cough and loss of smell are now in the minority of symptoms we are seeing,” he said. “Most people don’t have classic symptoms.”
- However, the virus can evade vaccines and infect fully vaccinated people.
But Gavin Screaton, head of Oxford University’s Medical Sciences Division and lead author of the paper, said booster shots can protect you even more.
- “Whilst there is no evidence for increased risk of severe disease, or death, from the virus amongst vaccinated populations, we must remain cautious, as greater case numbers will still place a considerable burden on health care systems,” he said, per CNBC.
