An Omicron variant of the new coronavirus strain is common in the United States. Now, more reports of omicron variant symptoms are beginning to emerge from frontline workers.
Dr.. Craig SpencerA New York emergency room doctor recently shared some anecdotal information about what has been seen in the emergency room when it comes to COVID-19. This is what he found:
- Each patient received the third vaccine for the COVID-19 booster and had mild symptoms. This included sore throat, fatigue and muscle aches.
- Patients who took two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine had mild symptoms, but more than those who took three doses. He said there was generally more tiredness and coughing and more miserable symptoms.
- Those who took a single dose of Johnson & Johnson had even worse, freaked out with a fever for a few days. Fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, and cough were also common COVID-19 symptoms for this group.
- Not every patient admitted to the hospital has been vaccinated. Unvaccinated people experience ‘extreme shortness of breath’ and ‘lack of oxygen when walking’ He said. They were not vaccinated to “regularly breathe oxygen”, he added.
Every patient I saw had Covid and received a third dose of the ‘booster’ and had mild symptoms.
In mild terms, I usually mean sore throat. Lots of sore throat. Also some fatigue, maybe some muscle aches.
There is no difficulty in breathing. No shortness of breath.
It’s all a little awkward, but that’s okay.

Doctor. Bruce Patterson, who works at Insildex for the Single-Cell Diagnostic and Treatment Center for Chronic Covid, told me in an interview that he’s recently seen a number of new cases, many of them showing symptoms similar to COVID-19.
- “The one thing that has always been there with COVID is fatigue,” he said. He also noted less loss of taste and smell in COVID-19 patients, he said.
- “I haven’t seen so much shortness of breath. I see a lot of headaches. You know, he smells, things like that are just kind of a common cold symptom, but with extreme tiredness.”
Overall, early data and research suggests there is: a COVID-19 ommicron variant that leads to less severe symptoms and recovery, she writes for Desert News.
- However, the novel variant of COVID-19 has been shown to avoid COVID-19 vaccines, leaving full vaccination of the new variant at risk.
- There is some research from Oregon Health and Science University that suggests fully vaccinated people may have “super immunity” if they also contract COVID-19.
