Now Reading:
More hospitalized cases also signal the severity of the infection, which, if not detected or known in time could lead to difficult complications or even death.
Therefore, regardless of whether or not you have the new COVID strain, here are some ways to check if your symptoms require urgent medical care:
In fact, an analysis of symptoms based on the COVID symptom study app by King’s College London found out that there are two specific symptoms which people should be careful of:
While fevers are always a classic predictor of a viral infection, including COVID-19, the severity and duration of your fever could signify additional worries related to your health.
Originally, a low-grade fever accompanied by chills and body pain were associated with COVID. However, the newer strain could make people experience higher temperatures (over 101 degrees Fahrenheit).
If problems do not subside or you do not see fever coming down after 5 days, it could be an indicator of something serious, or the virus heavily infecting healthy tissues.
Persisting fever is also a common sign of COVID pneumonia, one of the most common reasons for mortality in COVID patients.
Another surprising indicator of requiring intensive care can be experiencing a loss of appetite, fatigue and nausea.
All mentioned signs are classic denominators of a disruption in gastrointestinal functioning. They are also counted as severe signs of the infection spreading.
Eating less frequent meals, or not eating well during the infection period would not just hinder recovery, but also impact your metabolism and make you lose weight.
Impaired metabolism and nutrition could make it difficult for the body to support growth, healing and functioning of vital organs. Hence, if you go without eating meals, experience general displeasure in eating well or take frequent bathroom trips than usual, approach a doctor at once.
There still is no right way to differentiate a new COVID strain from the other one. However, experts have observed that most people with the new strain have four symptoms in common- a high fever, sore throat, fatigue and muscle pain. Loss of smell and taste is uncommonly seen right now.
At the same time, you should also be on the lookout for unusual symptoms like chronic fatigue, dizziness, muscle cramps, thrombosis pain, diarrhoea, shortness of breath, headaches, skin lesions, redness, eye pain and blisters. ‘COVID tongue’ is also a symptom doctors are warning patients to watch out for.
Remember, new or the old strain, it’s important to seek timely help and care to prevent bad outcomes.
Medical attention at the right time could also help you get back on your feet faster, lower chances of long COVID and manage the illness better.
People over the age of 50, those suffering from pre-existing comorbidity, having compromised immunity should consider themselves to be at a higher risk. In many cases, hospitalization may be recommended in even the mildest cases.
Apart from this, symptoms like chest pain, experiencing breathlessness, difficulty breathing, heart pain, delirium, a drop in oxygen levels could be the signs of worry.
