The newer, mutating COVID strains, including the Brazilian and the Kent variants are said to be quite stronger and spawning the capability to cause more symptoms and attack the vital organs more profoundly. According to current research which has emerged from hospitals across India, people testing positive for the virus are now also reporting different viral symptoms, unlike the classic signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
According to doctors in Gujarat, patients are now exhibiting unusual symptoms of the virus, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and even developing a cold. The absence of typical symptoms, such as that of a fever and a cough is now making doctors caution patients to get tested even if they do not show classic signs.
Other symptoms increasingly seen in COVID+ patients include joint pain, myalgia, gastrointestinal complications, weakness and loss of appetite.
Interestingly, unusual signs and detection of vague symptoms apart from a COVID-fever or cough were also highlighted during the second, third wave of infections that hit the UK and other European countries in the recent months.
