When the Covid-19, experts warned the world about three main symptoms, but with the emergence of new variants of SARS-CoV-2, many new symptoms of the disease appeared.

The classic three signs that someone has been infected with the coronavirus are high fever, a new, persistent cough and nausea, or a rash and a tingling sensation. However, unlike previous variants, Omicron is accompanied by symptoms that affect various organs of the body. And while studies on this mutation continue, the British general practitioner, Dr. Nina Aslam, emphasizes that those who have been infected with Omicron may develop conjunctivitis.

It is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin film that covers the inside of the eyelids, but at present conjunctivitis is not included in the official list of symptoms of Omicron or any other variant of the coronavirus, compiled by the WHO, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. and Disease Prevention or the British National Health System. But as Dr. Aslam told the British Express newspaper, "a preliminary study, which has not yet been evaluated by peers, shows that the Omicron variant has a greater ability to bind to ACE-2 receptors than the Beta or Delta, which means that conjunctivitis may be a symptom of Omicron ".

The British scientist notes that this symptom can appear in people who are asymptomatic and urges citizens to take care of their eye health and if they blush, to rush to deal with the problem.

The most common symptoms of Omicron mutation reported by patients in the Zoe Covid study in Britain include: sore throat, hoarseness, runny nose, sneezing, mild myalgia and fatigue. Other signs that someone may be infected with this variant are skin rashes, nausea or vomiting, with some people experiencing sleep paralysis and night sweats. A Berlin hospital recently reported that fainting spells may also be a sign of the highly contagious Omicron.
