China has put nearly 30 million people under strict lockdown measures as the country saw a steep rise in new cases Coronavirus infections that have hit a two-year high.

The country has taken some of the most drastic measures since the pandemic began, though its caseload is small compared to other major countries because of its tight ties to a “Zero Covid” strategy.

The recent surge is thanks to Omicron, which is said to be the dominant variant.

Omicron was first detected in November 2021 in southern Africa and Hong Kong and was soon confirmed as the dominant variant in the UK in December.

Here we take a look at some of the most common symptoms with the new fully vaccinated variant and two early warning signs you may have.

The most common symptoms in fully vaccinated individuals

Researchers in Norway conducted a study in which they interviewed 111 out of 117 guests at a party on November 26, 2021 that saw an omicron outbreak. Of the group surveyed, 66 had definite cases of Covid-19 and 15 had possible cases of the virus.

Of the 111 participants, 89 percent had received two doses of an mRNA vaccine and none had received a booster shot.

According to the results published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology euro surveillancethere were eight key symptoms experienced by the group of fully vaccinated partygoers.

These were cough, runny nose, tiredness, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fever and sneezing.

The study found that cough, runny nose and fatigue were among the most common symptoms among those who were vaccinated, while sneezing and fever were the least common.

Public health experts also add nausea in vaccinated individuals infected with the Omicron variant to this list of symptoms.

Although the vaccine protects against the more serious risks of the virus, it is still possible to contract Covid even if you have had both vaccinations and a booster shot.

The mild nature of the symptoms makes it difficult for people to distinguish the virus from one a cold.

But acc Professor Tim Spectorbehind the ZOE Symptom Study App, around 50 percent of the “new colds” currently are actually Covid”.

Two early warning signs that you may have Omicron

Experts also suggest that there are two distinct symptoms that could be a sign that a positive test is imminent: fatigue and dizziness/fainting.

In addition to simply feeling tired, exhaustion can also lead to physical aches and pains by causing aching or weak muscles, headaches, and even blurred vision and loss of appetite.

dr Angelique Coetzee, a private practitioner and chair of the South African Medical Association, said Good morning Britain that fatigue was one of the main symptoms of Omicron when the variant broke out in South Africa.

According to a Web MD poll that asked users how often they experienced fatigue from Dec. 23 to Jan. 4, 40 percent of women said they struggled with fatigue because of Covid, compared to one third of men.

Dizziness/fainting is the second sign you may have Omicron. A new report from Germany suggests there is a link between fainting spells and Omicron after doctors in Berlin found Covid was triggering recurring fainting spells in a 35-year-old patient who was hospitalized.

The doctors could see a “clear connection” between the infection and the fainting spells, the medical newspaper said.
