Omicron symptoms: Seven early symptoms to spot and why they differ from the Delta variant

Dr Angelique Coetzee, chair of the South African Medical Association, first raised the alarm regarding the new strain.

She said the symptoms linked to Omicron have been “extremely mild”.

Speaking to the BBC on Sunday, November 28, Dr Coetzee discussed how she saw a patient who presented unusual symptoms which differed from those associated with the Delta variant – the most globally dominant strain at present.

She explained that a male patient, around the age of 33, told the doctor he was “extremely tired for the past few days”.

She added that patient didn’t have a sore throat but described it as a “scratchy throat”.
