Covid: Infections continue to fall but millions are still ill – symptoms


The UK saw another peak in cases caused by Omicron; this time by its subvariants BA.4 and BA.5. Now the number of summer cases seems to be decreasing but Covid isn’t entirely gone. Being able to identify symptoms could still be helpful.

What’s more, the amount of people in hospitals suffering from Covid is also on the decline.

However, experts still warn that Covid hasn’t disappeared. The data estimates that one in 25 people in England currently have the virus.

Many of the recent cases have been put down to the subvariants Omicron BA.4 and BA.5.

Furthermore, people are still able to become infected with these culprits, even if they have had Covid recently.


Zoe said: “Fewer symptoms were reported over a shorter period of time by those who had already had a jab, suggesting that they were falling less seriously ill and getting better more quickly.”

Collecting data from their Covid-positive users, the research app found that five symptoms were especially prevalent in those with the vaccine.

The potential signs in fully jabbed patient can be:

  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Persistent cough.
