Now Britain is involved in the fifth wave Corona virus infection covid-19 infection, experts warned, adding that summer festivals that draw large crowds could turn into super-popular events if precautions are not taken.
There is a 43 percent jump in the country coronavirus the incidents in early June appear to be caused by people coming together to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee over a four-day weekend.
A month later, the numbers remain high, with the spike attributable Sub-variants BA.4 and BA.5 with Omicronstrain that spread rapidly across the UK in December 2021 and January 2022 before gradually disappearing.
“We’re in a wave at the moment,” said Professor Tim Spector of the ZOE Covid programme. “[We’re] approaching a quarter of a million cases a day, it’s already a wave.”
“We’ve toned it down, most people don’t think there’s a Covid problem now, most people don’t wear masks and don’t even worry about catching a cold symptoms.”
Here we look at some of the more common symptoms associated with Omicron and its progeny for the fully vaccinated, and two early warning signs you may have.
The most common symptoms are for the fully vaccinated
Researchers from Norway conducted a study in which they interviewed 111 of 117 guests at a party on November 26, 2021, where Omicron a flash
Of the group surveyed, 66 had definite cases of Covid and 15 had possible cases of the virus.
Of the 111 participants, 89 percent received two doses of the mRNA vaccine, and none received a booster shot.
According to the results published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology European surveillancea group of fully vaccinated partygoers had eight key symptoms.
These were: prolonged cough, runny nose, fatiguesore throat, headache, muscle pain, fever and sneezing.
The study found that cough, runny nose and fatigue were among the most common symptoms in vaccinated people, while sneezing and fever were the least common.
Health experts also added to this list of symptoms nausea in vaccinated people who became ill with the Omicron variant.
Although the vaccine protects against the more serious risks of the virus, it is still possible to get Covid even if you have both shots and a booster shot.
The mild nature of the symptoms makes it difficult for people to distinguish the virus from a the common cold.
But according to Professor Spector, about 50 percent of “new colds” are now actually Covid.
Two early warning signs that you may have Omicron
Experts also believe that there are two different symptoms that can be a sign that a positive test is just around the corner: fatigue and bouts of dizziness or fainting.
More than just feeling tired, fatigue can turn into physical pain, causing muscle soreness or weakness, headaches, and even blurred vision and loss of appetite.
Dr Angelique Coetzee, a private practitioner and chairperson of the South African Medical Association, said Good morning, Britain that fatigue was one of the main symptoms of Omicron when this variant broke out in South Africa.
In fact, according to a WebMD survey that asked users how often they suffered from fatigue between December 23, 2021 and January 4, 2022, 40 percent of women reported struggling with fatigue due to Covid, compared to one-third of men.
Dizziness or fainting is another sign that you may have Omicron.
A report from Germany recently suggested that there may be a link between fainting spells and Omicron after doctors in Berlin found that Covid was causing recurrent bouts of dizziness in a 35-year-old patient admitted to hospital.
German newspaper Art Zeitung said doctors see a “clear link” between the infection and the fainting spells.
