The symptom that tells you you've caught omicron

The omicron variant was first detected in South Africa in mid-to-late November. Preliminary data and media outlets have reported on one symptom that seems to indicate someone has the omicron variant. Many of those infected have reported having a scratchy throat as opposed to a sore throat.
As preliminary data begins to roll in surrounding the omicron variant, one symptom is beginning to stand out among the others: Many of those infected have reported having a scratchy throat as opposed to a sore throat.

A number of U.K. media outlets have reported on this symptom, which originally gained traction when the initial cases of the omicron variant were reported.

The South African doctor who was the first to detect the COVID-19 omicron variant, Angelique Coetzee, described most of the symptoms as "extremely mild" when alerting people what to look out for.

Unlike traditional coronavirus patients and those with the delta variant, the patient didn't report a sore throat, but rather a scratchy throat. He also didn't develop a cough or loss of taste or smell.

The omicron variant was first detected in South Africa in mid-to-late November.

On Tuesday, The Associated Press reported that data collected and analyzed from omicron patients has found that this particular coronavirus variant typically produces milder symptoms and can be slowed by the vaccines, though it is still highly transmissible.

Be afraid be very afraid as the devils of the world will have booster number 86 ready soon that is if the first 85 have not killed you as they had planned. Saw a stupid guy today out driving with the windows closed and wearing a mask. I have run out of Darwin awards to hand out. Need to get more.
