What are all the symptoms of omicron infection?
Hello, I am a college student. My college was shut down due to increased number of cases. Please let me know the symptoms of omicron infection. So that I can isolate myself on appearing any such symptom.
@senjuti The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists the possible symptoms of a SARS-CoV-2 infection without specifying a variant. These are:
fever or chills
shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
muscle or body aches
new loss of taste or smell
congestion or runny nose
nausea or vomiting
However, the CDC notes this list is not exhaustive, and people might experience different symptoms or combinations of symptoms. Furthermore, anecdotal reports on social media and other platforms claim that more specific combinations of symptoms characterize Omicron infections.
