Covid-19 cases are on the rise in the Northern Hemisphere. However, the symptoms are slightly different from the previous ones. According to researchers involved in the Zoe Covid Study app, the circulation of distinct variants and vaccination coverage are factors in changing symptoms in infected people.
The app has been tracking the symptoms of millions of people in the UK since the early days of the pandemic. In the latest report from the research project, some subtle differences were noted between unvaccinated and vaccinated people.
In fully vaccinated people, the most common symptoms reported were sore throat, runny nose, stuffy nose, persistent cough and headache. Infected people who took only one dose of the vaccine said that in addition to the symptoms already mentioned, they had sneezing.
In unvaccinated people, fever appears among the reported symptoms. Loss of smell and shortness of breath do not appear in the group of the five most cited main symptoms. “There are several reasons why symptoms may change, including that those who have been vaccinated have less severe symptoms, as well as more cases reported from younger people, where we also find different and less severe symptoms. “, said the researchers. . .
