The USA is still struggling to defeat the coronavirus, as data brought by worldometers.info reveals. We’re talking about the most affected country in the world by the ongoing COVID pandemic. The new Omicron variant of COVID, which was detected in South Africa, is now the dominant strain in the USA, according to NPR.org.
The world now wants to know how the Omicron variant can affect us. There are plenty of questions that need answers, however, but the good news is that medical researchers are always there to try finding the truth.
Dr. Anthony Cardillo speaks out
Dr. Anthony Cardillo is the CEO of Mend Urgent Care and an ER Physician. Monoclonal antibody treatments should work against the new Omicron variant, but there are some doubts. Will the world still need these treatments, considering that there are some newly authorized pills for treating COVID?
The doctor is glad to answer such conundrums:
Dr. Anthony Cardillo also brings us some good news regarding the symptoms of Omicron, saying that they are generally less severe compared to other variants. As expected, someone who gets infected with the Omicron variant of the virus will have to deal with fever, sore throat, body aches, runny nose, loss of smell and taste, headaches, and so on. But still, there’s one symptom for Omicron that will make many of us worry, especially during this period of the Holidays.
Complete loss of appetite is on the list
If you lose your pleasure for devouring those delicious meals from your fridge, there’s a chance that you’re infected with Omicron. Dr. Anthony Cardillo is the one raising awareness about this strange symptom. The loss of appetite can become so severe that it will even lead to anorexia. The scary symptom can even trigger itself early in the development of the disease.
Hopefully, as few people as possible will have to deal with the Omicron variant of COVID.
