Even after completing a stressful year of COVID-19 pandemic, the pandemic is far from over. Across the globe, new and more infectious form of SARS-CoV-2 variants have emerged. Data suggests global circulation of 24,000 mutations in 7,000 variants of the SARS-CoV2 virus. These are presenting higher clinical complications and posing newer difficulties for the healthcare system to cope up with.
Experts are suggesting to look for newer symptoms like conjunctivitis, sore throat, headache, rashes, upset stomach, and discoloration of fingers and toes other than the traditional fever, persistent cough, and loss of smell and taste as indication of COVID-19 infection.
Isolate and seek medical help immediately if you observe newer symptoms.
