Here Are The Deltacron Symptoms To Watch Out For

A new coronavirus variant, known as Deltacron, a mixture of the Omicron and Delta variants, has appeared in South Africa and experts have warned that it might drive the fifth wave of infections.

In a recent television interview, medical expert Dr Vivek Solanki said the Deltacron variant was expected to be highly contagious but not necessarily deadly.

According to Dr Etienne Simon-Loriere, a virologist at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, the body would often recognise the Deltacron variant as the Omicron variant.

As such, COVID-19 symptoms from Deltacron might resemble the omicron variant (the dominant variant driving current infections). The top symptoms to watch out for are:

  • Fatigue
  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Sneezing
  • Chills or shivers
  • Fever
  • Persistent cough
  • Hoarse voice or sore throat
  • Brain fog
  • Dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Muscle pains
  • Loss of smell

While the number of daily COVID-19 tests in Zimbabwe have been low compared to other countries, the test positivity rate has been declining, with Health Ministry recording a positivity rate of 4.4 per cent on Monday.
