BRITS is still dealing with self-isolation because thousands of other people are monitoring Covid every day.
The Rise in Omicron just before Christmas have witnessed more than ever being self-sufficient at home battling bugs.
Incubation – how long before symptoms appear?
Symptoms with the original Covid strain are thought to appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus.
However, the Omicron variant is thought to move much faster and has an incubation period close to 3-5 days.
This is because it is more contagious and why it spreads so much faster around the country.
It can also be presented as different symptoms with three main symptoms listed on the NHS for cough, fever and loss of taste or smell.
These include night sweats, sore throat, headache, muscle pain and fatigue.
But if you have any symptoms that could be Covid, it’s best to get one checked out and see if you could be contagious.
How long will the symptoms last?
Now that so many Britons are vaccinated and boosted, symptoms have also changed in those stabbed.
It also means that most people will recover in about five days to a week, although fatigue and persistent cough may last longer.
While you’re much more protected from the virus if you’ve been vaccinated, you can still get and spread the virus – so it’s good to know the new signs.
New research finds that two vaccinations provide much less protection against the Omicron variant, so there’s a chance you could get it.
Being boosted will push your antibody levels back to about 75%, which will greatly help in preventing illness.
Usually, the first symptoms are fever (temperature above 37.8 degrees Celsius) and/or cough, which is often dry at first.
But according to reports from cases in the UK, South Africa and the US, these are common Omicron’s early warning signs:
- Throat is scratched
- Lower back pain
- Runny / stuffy nose
- Night sweats
- Body aches
When did the symptoms progress?
In people with more severe infections, shortness of breath may become more pronounced between seven and ten days after they develop symptoms.
And, on average, patients with worsening breathing problems tended to be admitted to the intensive care unit by day ten.
Dyspnea – shortness of breath – tends to go away after about 13 days for survivors and continues until death for those who don’t.
According to the Chinese researchers, the median time to death was 18.5 days from onset of illness, and the median time to hospital discharge was 22 days for those in intensive care.
How long does it take to recover?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it can take two to six weeks to recover from Covid-19.
However, Covid has caused many people to burn their eyes from the disease, with some still suffering months after contracting the virus.
The speed of recovery will depend on the extent of the disease as well as the method of treatment.
Often young people get sick less often than those who will be affected by Covid long-term.
Patients who are recovering can still spread the disease as the body sheds the virus.
