Lara Herrero, Research Leader in Infectious Disease and Virology at Griffith University in Nathan, Australia, said that we have been living in the world of Kovid for more than 18 months. Advice and preventive measures are being given on behalf of the epidemic, government agencies, and health authorities. Along with this, methods have also been given to identifying the symptoms of infection with this virus. He told that the way the virus is changing its form, its symptoms are also changing.
Common symptoms like sore throat, phlegm, fever have been the initial symptoms of Covid-19 but now changes are being seen in these too. New data has revealed that those affected by the delta variant do not have the same symptoms as they were showing at the beginning of the epidemic. Most of the cases of the infection being found in Australia these days are of the delta variant.
The research leader said that we are all different human beings and our abilities are also different from each other. Our immune power is also different according to our different abilities. This means that the same virus will come with different symptoms in different people. In some, these symptoms may be seen such as rash, while in some they will feel like a sore throat.
Fever and cough are common symptoms of Kovid, while sore throat and headache have also been a sign of infection among the total number of people. Apart from this, a running nose was included in the initial data as a symptom of infection. Apart from this, loss of smell and taste is also a symptom of coronavirus infection.
Vaccine effect on symptoms
However, the vaccine may affect the new viral variant. In Australia, two doses of the vaccine (Pfizer and AstraZeneca) are sufficient to protect against the delta variant. Let us tell you that both vaccines are effective in preventing 90 percent of coronavirus infections. The importance of vaccination was highlighted at a recent 'superspreader' event in New South Wales. Of the 30 people who attended the birthday party, 24 were infected with the delta variant who had not received the vaccine. At the same time, 6 people did not get infected because they had taken a dose of the vaccine. In some cases, infection is still possible despite vaccination, but its effect will be less and symptoms will also be less. The figures have been affected by physical distance, change in weather, vaccination rate. The scientific community is fully convinced that the delta variant is more contagious than other variants of the coronavirus.
