A new variant of coronavirus has been identified and is being called Stealth Omicron. While we still don't know a whole lot about the virus, there are many scary things that warrant an awareness of its symptoms. In this blog post, we focus on its two most common symptoms, and then some other signs to watch for in your own health that might be related to the virus.
How does the Coronavirus spread?
Some scientists believe that the Coronavirus (CoV) might be spread by sitting in on a dry surface and other particles settling near them. It's also possible to become infected with it through contact with an infected bird, or through an aerosolized route. At this time, it's not clear how the coronavirus is spread.
What are the symptoms?
Your cat can contract the virus by getting in contact with other cats or environments contaminated with stool and saliva, or they might have consumed another animal infected with it. Your cat may also contract a more severe Coronavirus if they happen to get scratched by a deer mouse that carries this variation of the virus. The symptoms point towards twice as many felines contracting the stealth Omicron Coronavirus than previously thought.
Symptom of the new Stealth Omicron variant
The Symptom Coronavirus can cause a variety of subtle, fleeting illnesses. A common symptom is an infection in the upper respiratory tract or ears and sinuses and hearing loss. Other symptoms include swollen glands, loss of appetite, fever, body aches or other joint pains or persistent headaches. Patients usually recovered and experienced no further problems with infections.
Other stealthy symptoms
One of the most dangerous symptoms of the virus is often overlooked. You will not receive a fever because the virus shuts down your immune system. Imagine the fight that goes on in a body when a virus invades it and tries to take over. The victim becomes cold, sweaty, and feels terrible. They might even experience chronic or persistent diarrhoea and nausea. While most viruses that cause this type of reaction are quickly vanquished by antibiotics, Omicron is tougher to beat.
