The Omicron variant became the top one to watch out for in the UK in November – and now almost 30million people in China are living under lockdown as infections peak.

Brits are still testing positive, and now a new study has revealed the early signs to look out for – even if you’re fully vaccinated.

A Norwegian research team discovered eight common symptoms to look out for after analyzing an outbreak at a party.

The team explained how after speaking to 111 of the 117 partygoers, they found 66 people had confirmed Covid and a further 15 were possibly positive for it.

According to the study published in the journal of epidemiology and infectious diseases, Eurosurveillance, 89 percent of those involved in the research were double-bitted, and none of them had a booster shot at the time.

The research revealed eight clear key symptoms experienced by the double-bitten party-goers:

A runny nose, cough and fatigue were the most common among those vaccinated, with sneezing and fever being the least reported. Since these results were published, public health experts have also added nausea as a symptom.

Vaccination protects you from the more serious risks of the virus, but it is clearly still possible to contract Covid despite having both vaccinations and a booster shot.

Another benefit of vaccination is that the symptoms tend to be mild, which in many cases makes it difficult to distinguish from a common cold.

What are the unusual early warning signs?

Tiredness and dizziness or fainting are two possible early warning signs that you have been infected.

There are also reports from Germany showing a link between fainting spells and omicron. The German Ärztezeitung – a journal aimed at the medical community – said doctors could see a “clear link” between fainting spells and the infection.

According to the report, doctors in Berlin found that Covid was triggering repeated fainting spells in a 35-year-old patient who was hospitalized.

Meanwhile, a survey by health website Web MD found that 40 percent of women said they struggled with fatigue because of Covid, compared with a third of men.

The virus is still quite virulent, with Professor Tim Spector of the Covid student ZOE Symptom Study App stating that around 50 per cent of “new colds right now are actually Covid”.
