Omicron symptoms: WHO sees more evidence of ‘milder symptoms’ – key signs to look for


How to reduce the spread of Omicron

Despite steady evidence of the less intense symptoms of Omicron, COVID-19 hospitalisations are still occuring, leaving the NHS to battle the unwavering pressure of staffing shortages, space and quality of care.

With hospitalisations up 10 percent nationally, this highly contagious strain continues to spread throughout the UK and across the world.

While symptoms may be harder to notice before testing, public health officials are urging the nation to stay vigilant with testing and use their initiative when it comes to isolating.

Christina Marriott, chief executive of the Royal Society for Public Health, said: “Growing evidence shows that people who’ve received two doses of the vaccine typically present with less severe symptoms, such as headache, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat and loss of smell.

“It’s important for people who’ve been fully vaccinated to stay vigilant for cold-like symptoms and get tested if they’re living or working around people who are at greater risk from the disease.”
