The Omicron variant is continuing to spread – with symptoms you might not expect.
According to experts, the new variant has symptoms of vomiting and loss of appetite – symptoms not present with the Delta variant.
UK-based Zoe Covid Research analyzes people’s experiences with Covid through an app where the UK public uploads their symptoms. The app has shown that loss of appetite is a common symptom in new infections.
Tim Spector, a professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London, recently told Journal In the UK, nausea has been listed by many Omicron patients.
“A lot of them have nausea, low temperatures, sore throats and headaches,” says Spector.
Most popular Omicron variant symptoms similar to other Covid symptoms.
Symptoms, which are less severe than previous strains, include fatigue, muscle aches and an itchy throat. Loss of taste and smell is less common in this newer strain.

While there have been breakthrough cases of Covid in vaccinated people, they are rare.
In the event of a breakthrough case, it is highly unlikely that the victim will be hospitalized with severe symptoms or die from the virus.
Health officials have warned that the Omicron variant is more infectious and could lead to further breakout cases.
However, the spread could be offset by all vaccinated Americans getting a booster shot.
Current vaccines are expected to protect against severe illness, hospitalization, and death from infection with the Omicron variant.
With other variants, like Delta, the vaccine is still effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death.
Studies have also shown that side effects from vaccines are extremely rare.
