Today, let's get to know Omicron, the new strain of COVID-19 virus


Omicron

The discovery of this strain of the virus was first reported in South Africa. It was reported to the World Health Organization on November 24, 2021, after which the World Health Organization designated the B.1.1.529 strain as a strain of concern and named Omicron because this type of infection has mutations in many locations that affect the behavior of the infection, such as the ease of transmission and severity of disease, etc.


Currently, the World Health Organization and researchers understand omicron species as the nature of changes in virus behavior ability to spread infection, and severity of disease.


Omicron virus strains have more mutation sites than any other subspecies which has been reported previously, Including several mutations found in this species for the first time.

Many of them occur in the location of the spike protein. This is where the COVID-19 vaccine is located. Many species are used as targets for immunity.


Causing concern that This strain of the virus may be resistant to vaccines. Including other things, for example, it may affect the rate of spread. Evasion of the body's immune system Therefore, this is the reason why this breed has been designated as a "species of concern".


At present, the World Health Organization Points out information about the spread of this omicron strain of COVID-19. There have been outbreaks in at least 75 countries, including the important issue that Omicron spreads faster than the Delta strain of COVID-19.


However, researchers are still studying omicron species. Both in terms of being able to spread the virus, severity level, and symptoms of disease. How different is it from other breeds?

Scientist

The World Health Organization and partner organizations are studying various countermeasures. This includes vaccines, they said

*** Vaccines remain important *** in reducing severe illness. and death from existing species.


Current symptoms of this new strain of disease According to most reports, people who have been vaccinated against COVID tend to have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. You may experience the following symptoms:

- Fatigue, easily tired

- Muscle pain and body aches

- Rarely have a fever

- The nose can still smell

- The tongue can still taste

- There may be a slight cough

- Pneumonia


Most recently, a British medical expert Updated with 5 additional new symptoms of people infected with the Omicron strain of COVID-19.

These symptoms are different from other strains of COVID-19:

- Sore throat

- Slight muscle pain

- Tired, exhausted

- Dry cough

- Sweating profusely at night

Omicron

Currently, there have been reports of deaths from this species. Even though people who are vaccinated may have mild or no symptoms, we should still be vigilant and take care of ourselves to prevent infection with this strain. Especially in elderly patients who have not yet been vaccinated and those who have not yet been vaccinated.


However, it will take time for the World Health Organization to understand the severity of the omicron strain and all strains currently circulating around the world.
