how they differ from Delta, the flu and a cold, and how quickly they’ll show up

With the Omicron variant of Kovid, expanding in the city and abroad, many felt this week that their epidemic was expected to be over.

Omicron symptoms can mimic a common cold

Although experts say that the widely known COVID-19 symptoms, cough, fever or odor or taste are still indicative of a potential infection, researchers have found that the symptoms of Omicron may be similar to those of a cold.

The symptoms of the Delta variant were compared to a cold, but some doctors said that the cases of Omicron seen so far were particularly mild. A recent U.S. study of approximately 750,000 people found that currently the five most common symptoms for both Delta and Omicron types are runny nose, headache, fatigue, sneezing and sore throat.

However, in many people, Omicron causes abnormal symptoms that were not seen with previous types. In a popular TikTok video this weekend, people currently suffering from Omicron variants emphasize their unusual symptoms, including nausea, back pain, muscle aches, and eye pain.

Omicron seems more contagious with more rapidly appearing symptoms, but questions remain about severity

When coughs, headaches, and fevers manifest themselves four to five days after infection with old covid strains, omecron intake may also be shorter. Data on the latest type of COVID, first seen in Botswana and South Africa in mid-November, are still limited, but a recent study in Norway indicates an average three-day window between omicron type and symptom exposure, which is what Omicron Fortune’s Jessica Mathews reports. Can spread quickly.

Preliminary studies of the Omicron variant have shown that the infection may be less severe than the Delta variant. However, it spreads quickly. Last week, the World Health Organization announced that Omicron was spreading faster than any other strain before and that the variant was likely to be found in most countries, although it had not yet been discovered.

An analysis published last week by researchers in South Africa found that adults with COVID19 had a 29% lower risk of hospitalization than the first wave of infection in 2020, the fastest increase since May last year. Another study from Imperial College London found that the infection in the analyzed Omicron cases was no less severe than the Delta variant.

Johnson & Johnson, Sputnik and Synopharm vaccines have also been shown to be largely ineffective in protecting against Omicron, as studies have shown, and due to a large number of variants of variants, which health experts say may be significantly resistant to Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Good

US cities should expect a winter surge in cases

Experts say that covid infection “increases in winter” even without omikron. There are currently an average of 83,000 new covid cases per day in the U.S., with 61% of the population being vaccinated. On Friday, the seven-day national average of new daily cases peaked at 197,000, an increase of 65% in the last 14 days, the New York Times reported. Mortality also increased by 3% during this period. The highest national average of daily falls was set at 251,232 in the days following the holidays in January 2021.

Ali Moqdad, a professor of health sciences, says the reasons for the increase in cases were people moving around the country like before the epidemic, spending more time indoors due to the colder temperatures outside, wearing fewer masks and getting protection against vaccines and previous infections. He told NPR from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. As more and more people want to get back to life like before the epidemic and the new type is highly contagious and vaccine resistant, the risk of infection is very real.

While Europe is still battling the Delta variant, Omicron is spreading at a “monstrous pace”.

While Europe is still battling the delta variant, omikron is spreading at a “rapid pace”, with European leaders fighting to vaccinate most of their population and to amplify the growing cases of omikron and covid. COVID19 cases with 121,371 infections in 24 hours. ,[Omicron] It is spreading very fast and may be at risk of at least partially leaking out of our vaccines.

We are aware that our health systems are currently overloaded, “EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told reporters last week.

Shortly before the holidays, after Bloomberg Stanford University, Cornell University closed its campus after discovering 900 positive covid cases, and Omicron’s decision to return to online classes in the first two weeks of its winter quarter was also a cause for concern.

Some major league games have had their seasons cut short since the outbreak, and many Broadway shows have closed, some permanently. And companies continue to postpone their plans to return to office indefinitely for fear of new variants.
It gets worse when we go winter dead, “said Anthony Fawcett, the president’s senior medical adviser, to the University of California Chamber of Commerce Foundation last week, especially for those without the vaccine.
