According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States, another new variant, JN.1, has recently been identified in the United Kingdom, the United States, Iceland, Portugal, and Spain.

This strain is a "descendant" of the Pirol variant and is described as much more resistant to immunity than its predecessors.

According to family doctor Roger Henderson, the most common infection symptoms remain unchanged.

The doctor recommends paying attention to fever, sore throat, and fatigue.

"However, there are other symptoms that commonly feature when people are dealing with Covid, these can include: muscle soreness, shortness of breath, and even nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea," he said.

In addition, the doctor added that patients may also experience nasal congestion and shortness of breath, making them feel sluggish and weak.

By the way, since the "descendants" of the Omicron strain have become the most widespread, typical symptoms in people with a mild course of the disease include malaise, sore throat, and cough.

Common symptoms of coronavirus include:

  • Malaise
  • Elevated temperature
  • Cough
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of smell or taste
  • Inflamed eyes and rash
