Earlier today, we revealed news about the latest Covid variant called Omicron. A lot of people all over the world are freaking out following the discovery of the new variant, but an expert reveals essential news about the symptomatology.
Expert reveals news about Omicron symptoms
CNBC just reported that covid symptoms linked to the new Omicron variant had been described as “extremely mild” by the South African doctor who first raised the alarm over the new strain.
Dr. Angelique Coetzee, chair of the South African Medical Association, told the BBC recently that she started to see patients around Nov.18 presenting with “unusual symptoms” that differed slightly from those associated with the Delta variant.
As you already know, the Delta variant is the most virulent strain of the virus to date and is globally dominant.
“It actually started with a male patient who’s around the age of 33 … and he said to me that he’s just [been] extremely tired for the past few days and he’s got these body aches and pains with a bit of a headache.”
This is what she told the BBC.
Fauci is telling people to prepare for the worst, despite the mildness of the symptoms
It’s been just revealed that Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Americans Sunday that they should “prepare for the worst” after the emergence of Omicron.
Fauci spoke with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos on “This Week,”:
“We’re seeing these travel bans. Are they going to make any difference?” Stephanopoulos asked.
Fauci replied the following:
“You know, it will slow things down, George,” Fauci replied.
He also said that imposing travel bans on people was not likely to stop the highly transmissible virus from traveling across borders.
“No way that’s going to happen. What you can do is you can delay it enough to get us better prepared. That’s the thing that people need to understand. If you’re going to do the travel ban the way we’ve done now and that we’re implementing right now, utilize the time that you’re buying to fill in the gaps.”
