Covid symptoms have changed with the new Indian variant which were loss of taste, smell, a fever or a persistent cough.
The symptom tracking app ZOE which collects data about Covid symptoms has shown that since May the original symptoms are now less common.
The founder of the tracking app ZOE, Professor Tim Spector said that a headache and a runny nose are now the most common Delta symptoms, or “like a bad cold” for younger people.
Speaking on YouTube Professor Spector said, “This variant seems to be working slightly differently.
“People might think they’ve just got some sort of seasonal cold and they still go out to parties and they might spread it around to six other people.
“We think this is fuelling a lot of the problem.
“The message here is that if you are young, you are going to get milder symptoms anyway.
“It might just feel like a bad cold or some funny ‘off’ feeling, but do stay at home and do get a test.”
He added, “Since the start of May, we have been looking at the top symptoms in the app users and they are not the same as they were.”
