As you probably know by now, the Omicron covid variant is all over the news these days. This is happening despite the fact that the symptomatology of Omicron is a mild one, according to health experts. 

Omicron in the news

It’s been revealed that the fourth shot of the Covid 19 vaccine is boosting antibodies to higher levels than the third vaccine.

But, it’s also been reported that, on the other hand, this is not enough to prevent Omicron infections, a preliminary study in Israel showed. 

This is what the press agency Reuters is showing. 

There’s been a lot of talk about the potential treatments for covid 19 especially since a lot of people are not too happy to hop in the vaccine train.

It’s been just revealed on the official WHO website that the organization is recommending two new drugs for treating covid 19.

Omicron and mild covid symptoms 

Deseret News just noted that the omicron variant has been linked to mild covid-19 symptoms — but that doesn’t mean you’re exactly due for a walk in the park.

The same online publication notes the fact that experts are pushing forth the idea that the phrase “mild covid-19 symptoms” doesn’t mean what you think it does.

In some cases, mild symptoms might indicate something that is pretty similar to the flu or a cold.
In other scenarios, mild symptoms could be a severe cold that stops short of hospitalization.

The online publication also dropped some interesting quotes along the way.

“The big question is whether or not you’re able to recuperate at home.”

This is what Carl Lambert Jr., a Chicago-based family physician, told HuffPost.

He continued and said: 

“When I talk to patients, I explain that moderate or severe means that you had to go to the hospital and they had to keep you to watch you.”

Stay tuned for more news, and make sure to stay safe as well.
