People infected with one of the omicron types of coronavirus are more likely to have cold symptoms. This, in turn, allows the pathogen to spread more easily and quickly.

Is there a return to “normality” due to vaccinations? How threatening are the various mutations in the virus? Should we fear another wave of epidemics? In our series, you will find everything you need to know about the coronavirus pandemic.

It has now been proven that the omicron variant of the coronavirus is the most common infection They may have the same symptoms as if they had a cold. These symptoms include a runny nose, sneezing, or a sore throat, but those who have had the virus may experience strange headaches.

This was also confirmed by an app called Zoe Covid used by the British, where users can record the symptoms they feel. Those infected have reported the same symptoms, so the scientists behind the app are now drawing the UK government’s attention to the need to update the Public Health Call, which lists possible symptoms of a coronavirus infection, Watchman.

Half of the patients who reported cold-like symptoms tested positive for the coronavirus, and nearly half of the infected Zoe Covid users reported classic symptoms such as fever and severe coughing or loss of taste and smell, the newspaper reported.

Tim Spector, the study’s author, said there is an urgent need to update symptoms that may indicate infection with the coronavirus. Recent research from the University of Cambridge shows that Omicron is able to bypass the body’s defenses more effectively, which is a major public health challenge.

According to the British recommendation, those with fever, strong cough or loss of taste and smell should currently undergo a PCR test and be promptly quarantined. This is a problem because only people with cold symptoms are not recommended for testing or quarantine, so the new type may spread more easily and more quickly. Experts say the findings show 50 per cent of patients with colds have Omicron in the UK.
