Omicron Variant Showing ‘Unusual but Mild’ Symptoms, South African Doctor Says
Most are able to be treated at home
The South African doctor who alerted officials of the possibility of a new variant, later named omicron, says the “unusual but mild” symptoms are what caught her attention.
In a FOX News report, Dr. Angelique Coetzee, who is a board member of the South African Medical Association, said she first noticed unusual symptoms on Nov. 18.
“It presents mild disease with symptoms being sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two not feeling well,” Coetzee said. “So far, we have detected that those infected do not suffer the loss of taste or smell. They might have a slight cough.”
