Coronavirus symptom: Body pain in THIS area could be a sign of COVID’s Omicron variant | The Times of India
In November 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated COVID’s Omicron variant as a ‘variant of concern’ (VoC), which meant that the SARs-CoV-2 strain was highly transmissible, with a higher fatality rate.
Over time, experts realized that while the new variant was extremely contagious, it was much milder than the previous COVID-19 variants including the Delta.
However, over seven months have passed since the news of the Omicron variant came to the fore and up until today, it is still dominant in many parts of the world. With new subvariants emerging every now and then, scientists and experts have warned people against taking the variant lightly.
Recently, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declared new Omicron variants BA.4 and BA.5 as dominant, the former accounting for nearly 16% of recent cases in the country and the latter a whopping 54% of new cases.
Furthermore, a new subvariant of Omicron has come to light in recent time, called BA.2.75, which is nicknamed Centaurus and was first detected in India in early May, according to a media report.
Amid new emerging variants, experts have highlighted another symptom – a specific pain – that could be an indicator of the Omicron variant. Let’s find out what it is
