Flu-like symptoms being found in infected

There are 20 corona patients admitted in his hospital. These patients have flu-like symptoms. It has fever, sore throat and mild cough. No patient has been put on oxygen support. Right now, 90 to 95 percent of the new cases of corona that are coming, are recovering in three to four days.

According to Dr. Suresh, hospitalization may not be increasing, but there is a need to be cautious. For a long time, people have been careless about Corona. But it should not be done. The virus is still present and mutations are constantly happening in it, due to which new sub-variants are emerging. In such a situation, it is very important to protect against corona. Especially the elderly and people suffering from chronic disease should be more cautious.

The new sub variants are also like the old variants.

Kovid expert Dr. Anshuman Kumar told that the symptoms of all the sub variants of Omicron are also similar to that of Omicron. Even though cases are increasing due to all these variants, but there is nothing to panic in this. Corona virus has become like a common cough and cold. The firepower of the virus is also less. Complaints of cough, fever or cold are being seen in corona patients. The infected are not having lung infection or respiratory problems. So there is no need to panic. This type of ups and downs will continue in the cases of corona in the country.
