What are the symptoms of Omicron?
The exact list of symptoms is still to be identified.
However, the South African doctor Angelique Coetzee who first noticed the variant reported this new variant to have “very mild symptoms”.
Dr Coetzee explained that Omicron seems to cause other symptoms than the typical loss of taste and smell and breathing problems.
