By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: A study done by Zoe Health in the United Kingdom found that symptoms of the Omicron COVID-19 variant differ from symptoms that were common at the start of the pandemic.
In addition, Omicron may be less severe than the delta variant, CBS reports.
Patients with Omicron experience sore throat and hoarseness which were not common among delta cases.
The study also found that those who contracted the Omicron variant were less likely to be hospitalized compared to those with the Delta variant.
Symptoms that used to be prevalent including fever, headaches, brain fog, and eye soreness – are less prevalent in Omicron cases.
The study tested people in the U.K. who were vaccinated and looked at their symptoms and length and types of symptoms between the 2 variants.
The study also found Omicron symptoms do not last as long in vaccinated people.
Health experts say that the new Omicron subvariants, BA.4 and BA.5 appear to be causing a loss of sense of smell or taste again.
