The Omicron variant is getting more and more worrying, Mother. Recently, the positive number of COVID-19 for the Omicron variant has been increasing. Therefore, your little one must return to the routine of learning from home.
It is known, the Omicron variant has much milder symptoms than the previous variant, Delta. Even so, the symptoms will certainly feel more severe if the patient has not received the vaccine.
In those who have been vaccinated, there are some common Omicron symptoms that will be seen, Mother. For example, a runny or stuffy nose, feeling tired to muscle aches, and a feverish condition.
Not only that, patients who have been vaccinated will also get coughing, sneezing, and lack of smell or anosmia. The patient will also experience a very drastic decrease in appetite, Mother.
The initial symptom that is usually seen is a sore throat, Mother. According to the Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health, Dr. Allison Arwady, sore throat is one of the most common early symptoms that patients experience when exposed to Omicron.
“For the group of people with mild symptoms, we see sore throat being the most common symptom,” said Dr. Arwady, as quoted from detik.com.
Because they have mild symptoms, most Omicron patients will self-isolate at home, Mother. This was even instructed directly by the Ministry of Health.
Meanwhile, there are several conditions for recovery that must be met by Omicron patients undergoing self-isolation, Mother. The following is a series of conditions:
1. Patients without symptoms
In cases of COVID-19 that have no symptoms or are asymptomatic, self-isolation is carried out for at least 10 days, Mother. This time is calculated from the collection of confirmatory diagnostic specimens.
2. Patients with mild symptoms
In confirmed cases of COVID-19 with mild symptoms, self-isolation is carried out for 10 days from the onset of symptoms, plus at least three days free from fever and respiratory problems.
For cases that experience symptoms for 10 days or less, they must undergo isolation for a minimum of 13 days, Mother.
So what if the patient wants to speed up or shorten the self-isolation period? CONTINUE READING CLICK HERE.
