British researchers have warned that suffering from a sore throat, runny nose and headache, means there is a high probability of infection with the Corona virus.
Zoe’s Covid study team tracked the epidemic using feedback from the general public, and estimated that half of people with cold-like symptoms actually had Covid.
The team says there has been an “explosion” of Covid cases over the past week, driven by the new Omicron mutant.
Corona infected about 144,000 people a day and then feel unwell.
For most people, Covid is a mild illness. Some do not show any symptoms at all.
But it can still cause very serious symptoms in some people, including those who haven’t been vaccinated.
If you develop cold-like symptoms, you should get tested for the Corona virus, advises chief scientist Professor Tim Spector.
“The number of new symptomatic cases has exploded last week,” Spector said.
“For most people, those infected with the omicron have very similar symptoms to the common cold, ranging from sore throats, runny nose and headaches. Just ask a friend of yours who recently had the omicron mutant to find out.”
“We need to urgently change public messaging to save lives,” the chief scientist stressed.
On Wednesday, the new cases of Corona virus in Britain reached 10,6,122 cases, exceeding 100,000 cases in one day for the first time.
With infections doubling every two to three days, experts say, British health officials are concerned about the strain this could put on the NHS.
Preliminary studies indicate that the Omicron mutant is less dangerous, as the number of people who develop serious complications as a result of infection with it is much lower compared to other mutant variants.
But the massive wave of infections will still mean that many people require hospital care, as well as many doctors and nurses having to miss work due to COVID-19.
People are advised to get a quick coronavirus test before meeting friends and family at Christmas.
These tests help detect cases of infection in people who may not show symptoms but are still a source of infection, which means they can transmit the virus to others.
