'Omicron', the new Covid variant first found in South Africa, does not have the same symptoms one would normally see in the Delta variant, the doctor who alerted government scientists to the possibility of a new variant told NDTV. Mild symptoms like fatigue and body ache have been reported but there are no complaints of stuffy noise and patients who contracted the new strain don't seem to have high temperatures, she added. Dr Angelique Coetzee, the chairperson of the South African Medical Association, said that people shouldn't panic and see a doctor even if they suspect they have contracted 'Omicron'. "These symptoms get better on their own," she said.
