‘Omicron’ variant has extremely mild symptoms

Just The News: South African doctor who helped discover Omicron says variant’s symptoms mild so far.

Symptoms of the new COVID-19 variant Omicron are “extremely mild,” according to South African Dr. Angelique Coetzee, who was one of the first to recognize the new variant.

She told the BBC Sunday that symptoms include “a bit of a headache,” but unlike many other COVID cases, people experience “more of a scratchy” throat, not a sore throat. Infected patients do not have a cough, and they have not been reporting a loss of smell or taste. 

Coetzee, the chair of the South African Medical Association, predicted the variant has already spread across the world, and panic is unnecessary “at this stage.”

Omicron was labeled on Friday by the World Health Organization as the newest variant of concern since Delta, which first emerged from India in October 2020.  more here

  2. Y’know what? If you have to, I mean HAVE TO, get a disease – it’s probably best to get one you have to have a test to determine if you’ve got it.
    Not one of those nasty diseases that make you break out in splotches, or can’t breathe, or emaciate the body – but a nice disease with no symptoms and no effects which can only be determined by a test.

    That’s the ticket! That’s MY kind of disease!
