It has been more than two and a half years since the outbreak of the Corona virus, but its new and strange symptoms are still emerging.
At a time when Omicron subtypes BA4 and BA5 are spreading rapidly around the world, experts have also reported a new symptom among people affected by them.
That symptom is profuse night sweats.
Some researchers believe that the symptoms of these new strains are somewhat different from other strains of the virus.
Luke O’Neill, professor of biochemistry at Trinity College in Ireland, said: ‘I discovered a new symptom of BA5 which is profuse night sweats, isn’t that strange?’
These new types of corona are adept at evading the immune response, meaning that people who have already been infected with Covid or have been vaccinated can get sick a second or third time.
But the good news is that preliminary evidence suggests that people infected with BA5 are less likely to get sick or die than with delta or earlier types, but its potential to make people sick again is a concern. .
Professor Luke O’Neill said the different types of symptoms are caused by genetic changes in the virus, but one reason is our immune system’s response to the disease.
He said that this disease is different because the virus is changing, our body has developed some immunity against it, so the combination of changes in the immune system and the virus is causing a different disease and it is very night. Symptoms like excessive sweating are coming.
He said that vaccination is very important to protect against serious complications of Covid.
However, there is not much data regarding this new symbol.
According to the Zoe Covid Study app, which reports Covid symptoms, the most common symptoms are runny nose, headache, sneezing, sore throat and persistent cough.
According to this app, fever, loss of sense of smell and difficulty in breathing are now less reported in the past.
