Omicron BA.5 symptoms are slightly different even from the original Omicron strain
Loss of smell, shortness of breath, stiffness in the chest or brain fog – these are no longer the primary symptoms that indicate you have COVID. In the last three years, as the virus has evolved, the symptoms that are associated with them have also changed. Doctors and health experts have pointed out that Omicron can cause a whole array of signs and symptoms that were previously not seen. Moreover, the symptoms for BA.5, which is the dominant variant currently, are slightly different, compared to even the original strain.
