Omicron latest news – New Covid symptoms will become the most common & bug weakens ‘to be like common cold’ expert warns
NEW Covid symptoms have overtaken the traditional signs as the most common, a leading study has revealed.
The most frequently reported symptom is a runny nose, affecting 73 per cent of people who had a positive Covid test.
It’s followed by headache (68 per cent), fatigue (64 per cent), sneezing (60 per cent), and sore throat (60 per cent).
The news comes as The University of Warwick’s Dr Mike Tildesley believes Omicron is a possible ‘ray of light’ in seeing the end of the pandemic.
He told Times Radio: “The thing that might happen in the future is you may see the emergence of a new variant that is less severe, and ultimately, in the long term, what happens is Covid becomes endemic and you have a less severe version.
“It’s very similar to the common cold that we’ve lived with for many years.”
