Metroterkini.com – Be alert if you suddenly have a dry cough when you wake up and your throat starts to feel uncomfortable. Who knows, the latest Covid symptoms aren’t just fever.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that BN.1 is a subvariant or mutation of the SARS-CoV-2 variant of Omicron.
This subvariant has been detected in more than 30 countries, including the United States, Austria, Australia, United Kingdom, India, Germany, and South Korea. However, this latest variant has not been detected in Indonesia.
Latest Covid Symptoms
Basically, the BN.1 subvariant is reported to have fairly mild symptoms, similar to the flu. The symptoms are also no different from other Omicron subvariants.
Here are some symptoms of subvariant BN.1.
Cough is one of the symptoms of Covid-19 subvariant BN.1, especially dry cough.
In cases of the common cold, coughing usually causes mucus to produce phlegm. Meanwhile, cough due to Covid-19 is mostly in the form of a dry cough. This Covid-19 dry cough usually occurs for no reason, aka a sudden cough for no apparent reason.
Nevertheless, there are also Covid-19 patients who report experiencing symptoms of coughing up phlegm.
Colds are also a sign of the Covid-19 subvariant BN.1.
Colds are common, especially in the middle of the current rainy season. Therefore, to find out the symptoms of a cold caused by this virus, it is necessary to do an antigen or PCR test.
3. Sore throat
In addition to coughs and colds, sore throat also needs to be watched out for. Usually a sore throat accompanied by a dry cough.
Actually coughing is the body’s mechanism for removing foreign objects from the throat or respiratory tract. If the cough keeps recurring without any foreign objects coming out, the throat will feel itchy and sore. This is also a symptom of the latest covid.
Fever is also one of the symptoms of the latest variant of Covid. Fever is an increase in body temperature above normal temperature. However, normal body temperature will be different for each individual, especially age.
Citing various sources, here are normal body temperatures at each age:
– baby 36.3-37.7 degrees Celsius,
– children 36.1-37.7 degrees Celsius,
– adults 36.5-37.5 degrees Celsius.
To find out the symptoms of fever due to Covid-19, make sure to do an antigen or PCR swab test or test at the nearest health facility.
Infection with the BN.1 subvariant has also been described as fatigue-inducing. This tired feeling sometimes appears without a cause.
Fatigue usually appears due to the body’s immune system working hard to fight the incoming virus.
6. Muscle or joint pain
If you feel pain in the area of the muscles or joints, you should not ignore it. Because pain in that area is one of the symptoms of the new variant of Covid.
The sensation of pain itself needs attention, because sometimes the pain can radiate to other areas of the body.
The symptoms of the latest covid are actually still the same as the previous subvariant, one of which is headache.
This headache will basically be different for each person. But generally headaches will appear in the form of a throbbing sensation accompanied by dizziness. [**]
