Weakness, Sore Throat, Body Ache: What Are The Common Symptoms Of Five Omicron Patients In India

Omicron-Covid-Variant-In-India_What-Are-The-Common-Symptoms-Of-The-Five-Patients

Highlights:

  • Although mild symptoms such as sore throat, body aches, and weakness have been observed, the virus has not yet caused any serious sickness.
  • There have been no reports of trouble breathing, loss of smell, or loss of taste.
  • According to experts, this new characteristic might be the result of its mutation.

So far, five cases of the novel Covid-19 variant Omicron have been identified in India: two in Karnataka and one each in Maharashtra, Delhi, and Gujarat. All of the patients, however, exhibited just minor symptoms.

All overseas travellers who tested positive for Covid are being admitted to the LNJP Hospital, where a special ward has been set up to isolate and treat patients.

RT-PCR testing are now required for travellers travelling from “at-risk” nations, and they will be permitted to leave the airport only when the results are received.

European nations, including the United Kingdom, as well as South Africa, China, Brazil, New Zealand, Botswana, Mauritius, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, Singapore, and Israel, according to the Centre, are identified as “at-risk” counties.

The South African doctor who raised the alarm about Omicron stated many of her patients suspected of carrying the novel coronavirus strain had just mild symptoms and had recovered completely without the need for hospitalisation.

The Tanzanian returnee who became India’s fifth Omicron patient and the first proven case in Delhi, according to LNJP MP Dr Suresh Kumar, had a sore throat, weakness, and body aches.

Other patients remain largely asymptomatic.

There is little known about this novel variant Omicron, which the World Health Organization has recognised as a variant of concern. It was formerly claimed to have thirty mutations. However, for the time being, a possible threat has been ruled out. The strain is currently under investigation, and instances reported in India and other countries show that the symptoms are more similar to a normal cold rather than Covid-19 cases caused by other variants.\

Scientists believe the strain developed a “human-like” appearance by incorporating a snippet of genetic material from the other virus, most probably a common cold virus.

The first Omicron case in India was a South African national who had earlier left the country and had no symptoms and tested negative. All Omicron patients have reported moderate symptoms, including the Bengaluru doctor with no foreign travel history, the Mumbai marine engineer who was not vaccinated, and the Gujarat NRI.

Scientists from throughout the world have warned that, while Omicron may not be deadly, they cannot guarantee that it is transmissible. The symptoms suggest that the variant isn’t causing serious sickness.

There have been no recorded incidences of difficulty breathing, loss of smell, or loss of taste.

A 33-year-old resident of Maharashtra’s Thane district who tested positive for the Omicron is in “stable” health and responding well to medical treatment, according to the most recent update.
