If the original coronavirus was a rebranding of the flu, then Omicron is a rebranding of the cold.
Of course, once the hysteria hits a certain point, they’re going to start adding more serious symptoms to the list.
Like myocarditis, for example.
While the Omicron variant of the coronavirus can cause the classic symptoms of Covid-19 – fever, persistent headaches, and a loss of smell or taste, it can also cause the symptoms of a traditional cold. The five most common symptoms logged in Britain’s ZOE Covid tracking app are indistinguishable from those of the common cold: a runny nose, headaches, fatigue, sneezing, and a sore throat.
However, some people infected with Omicron have suffered nausea and vomiting, Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London and one of the founders of ZOE, told the Daily Express on Sunday. Spector added that these symptoms were reported by fully vaccinated people, as well as some who had received booster shots.
Earlier, the ZOE study revealed a loss of appetite as a symptom of Omicron infection.
Thinking that you may have Omicron is also a symptom of Omicron.
