What Are the New Symptoms of Covid-19?

Covid-19, which emerged in Wuhan, China in the last quarter of 2019 and quickly spread to the world, has not yet ended. The symptoms of Covid-19, which we encounter with a new variant and effects every day, have changed again.

Since the Omicron variant of Covid-19, which affected the world in a short time after it emerged in Wuhan, China in 2019, many effects have changed.

When the epidemic first appeared, it showed symptoms of fever, shortness of breath and pain in the body, but then it started to show similar effects with the flu, but did not lose its fatality. So, what are the new effects of Kovid-19, which has been affecting the world since January, with the Omicron variant?

New Effects of Covid-19

The symptoms of the Covid-19 epidemic, which has increased again around the world, have changed. Recently, we have encountered more Omicron and its sub-variants BA4 and BA5, and symptoms such as long-lasting high fever, cough, shortness of breath, which we previously encountered more frequently, have been replaced by more upper respiratory tract infections such as nasal congestion, sore throat, sneezing, with the Omicron variant becoming widespread since January. left the symptoms in the foreground. This means that the disease descends to the lower respiratory tract less, hospitalizations are less, and the disease is milder. However, in patients with underlying disease and suppressed defense system, the possibility of involvement of the lower respiratory tract, namely the lungs, still continues.

New Effects Are Similar to Cold and Flu

Noting that the new symptoms of Covid-19 are similar to the symptoms between flu and cold, experts said, "Fever, nasal congestion, sore throat, sneezing, general weakness in the body with fever, which lasts for two to three days, are the symptoms we encounter more frequently in the new period. We have no way of separating these symptoms from flu and cold. For this reason, it is the best approach for patients with symptoms to isolate themselves or have a test, act according to the test result, and name the disease. Because it is not possible for us to distinguish diseases based on symptoms.''
