HAVE some lesser known symptoms of the Omicron Covid-19 variant that could mean you need urgent treatment.
One of the measurements signal can occur on your skin, lips, or nails, and you should see your doctor if you notice them.
According to medical experts in the US at Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one symptom may be a pale, gray, or blue color on your skin, lips, or fingernails.
Although Omicron is believed to spread much more rapidly than other variants, a series of extremely positive studies suggest it IS milder than other strains, with the first official UK report showing 50 to 70% lower risk of hospitalization than Delta.
Health officials have repeatedly said the Covid booster shots protect against Omicron and offer the best chance of weathering the pandemic.
The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign is helping to get vital additional vaccines in British arms to avoid the need for any new restrictions.
The CDC warns that a bluish tint to your skin, lips, and nails can be a sign of low oxygen levels.
US health experts describe any occurrence of this symptom as an “urgent warning sign” and say people should get them checked out by a medical professional right away.
Other unusual signs of Omicron include lower back pain, a hoarse or irritable voice, night sweats, muscle aches, and a runny nose.
Meanwhile, the three main NHS symptoms of other variants are high temperature, new persistent cough and loss or change of taste and smell.
Making sure you know the signs of Omicron, as well as the main symptoms of Covid-19, is just one way you can prevent the spread of bugs.
Another important way to avoid spreading Covid, getting sick, and becoming unwell is with booster vaccinations.
Anyone feeling unwell and having symptoms should get tested.
Although there are shortages in some areas, lateral flow checks are a great way to keep your loved ones safe as they provide quick results.
Experts say you should do lateral flow tests the day you see someone to prevent the spread of variation.
You must report all lateral flow test results to the NHS.
The guidelines say if your home rapid test comes back positive, you should immediately self-isolate and do a PCR test, then follow the rules based on that result.
