The new Delta variant of the Covid-19 has a more contagious and resistant design than its predecessors. In some cases, it is even more dangerous than any other variation. If you are worried you might have caught the Delta variant, here are some symptoms you should keep an eye out for.

Fever and chills

Fever is quite a common symptom for COVID-19 infections, and sometimes you might get chills as well. If your temperature is higher than 100.4 degrees, it might be a sign that you should buy a Coronavirus test.

Having a hard time breathing

Any difficulties associated with breathing represent a serious reason to worry. You might want to seek medical help if you have trouble breathing or if you suffer from chest pain.

Fatigue

Another common effect of a COVID-19 infection is fatigue. More than that, fatigue is a symptom that often does not disappear after the infection either. If you feel perpetually tired, have muscle weakness, or feel worn out, this might be a symptom of the Delta variant.

Headaches

Headaches caused by COVID-19 can be quite devastating, despite the fact they are not the typical symptoms listed for COVID.

Coughing

A dry cough is a common COVID-19 symptom reported by many patients. However, coughing can get worse if the infection becomes more severe.

Sore throat and runny nose

Cold-like symptoms also appear in COVID-19 cases. More than that, it appears that Delta variant is more likely to cause symptoms related to the throat and the nose.

It is also possible to have only some of the symptoms listed above, or even none of them if you are asymptomatic. Moreover, these symptoms are associated with multiple other diseases, as well you know you have been in contact with an infected person or a larger group of unknown people you might want to get tested to be safe.
