There's nothing unique about my situation: The highly contagious Omicron variant brought numbers to new heights across the U.S., and New York got hit particularly hard. Being overwhelmingly tired has been documented as a key sign of an Omicron infection, in both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. Thankfully, I didn't get body aches or night sweats either, despite those being the other common complaints among vaccinated people who get Omicron. The variant doesn't tend to cause loss of taste and smell or shortness of breath, so I wasn't expecting those symptoms, but I was still very grateful to avoid them. In sharing my symptoms on Twitter, I encountered other boosted people who had recovered from an Omicron case and experienced recurring headaches, sometimes weeks after their initial infection. Though Omicron has a higher transmission rate than Delta, there have been fewer deaths and hospitalisations with the newer variant. This included rarer symptoms like nausea, joint pain, weight loss and anaemia. Rather than one place, and then another, getting hit by a surge in cases, leading to rolling production and shipping disruptions, Omicron hit a lot of places nearly simultaneously. As Omicron settles in the upper airway and causes inflammation there, children could have a worse cough and need a bit more help to breathe properly. Omicron has shaken providers and citizens worldwide with its emergence, prolific spread and high number of breakthrough cases. Health experts urge the public with Omicron symptoms not to leave home, except to obtain medical care and do not visit public areas and do not go to places where you are unable to wear a mask. In addition, rapid advancements in imaging technologies are allowing eye care specialists to diagnose patients with early membranes of wet AMD before patients develop symptoms. However there is evidence, from more than one country now, of a growth advantage for BA.2 compared to the main Omicron variant, which may mean it is more transmissible.
