How long do these symptoms last – According to health experts, the symptoms of Omicron appear at a faster rate than Delta and their incubation period is also shorter.  In Omicron patients, symptoms appear after 2 to 5 days of infection.  According to British epidemiologist Tim Spector, the common cold-like symptoms of Omicron are the same, which last for an average of 5 days.  However, restrictions, social distancing and wearing masks have a great impact and due to this, the cases of flu have also decreased.

 Tim Spector says that Omicron’s symptoms last less days than Delta’s.  Symptoms appear for a very short time in people, especially in the first week.  If people come negative in the test after 5 days, then it means that these symptoms came and went in these 5 days.  That is, the faster they appear, the faster they go.  In most people, the symptoms of Omicron last for 3 to 5 days.  Its symptoms are mild in vaccinated people.  Omicron is more severe in people who have not taken a single dose of the corona vaccine.

Antibody-experts made from Omicron also say that serious symptoms have not been reported in Omicron cases.  Also, the immunity level of those recovering from Omicron will also be good.  Experts believe that after overcoming the new variant, this immunity can remain in the body of people for a long time.  Professor Paul Hunter, an infectious disease expert at the University of East Anglia, says that Omicron or any other variant improves immunity.  Then this immunity becomes more effective against that variant.  However, it continues to infect other people even then.  According to the studies done on the infected, anti-N antibodies have been found in the body of the patients who have been exposed to the virus and hence the virus does not have any significant effect on their body after recovery.

At the same time, according to a study by scientists of Imperial College London, the immunity of the body to fight against Covid also increases due to common cold and cold.  Scientists say that common cough and sneeze increase T cells.  These cells work to recognize many types of viruses in the body.  Dr Riya Kundu told The Sun, ‘We found that high levels of pre-existing T cells can protect against Covid infection.  This is an important discovery but it is only one form of security and cannot be relied upon alone.  The best way to protect yourself from corona is to get vaccine doses and boosters.
