Researchers noted that young people caught in the Delta variant can pass the disease like a cold, so they are much more likely to infect others, while they also noted changes in symptoms observed in people who were infected.

As the pandemic continues, researchers trying to prevent the virus and studying new variants finally put the Delta variant under the lens.

Catching the Delta variant can feel more like a bad cold for young people. It should be pointed out that young people caught in the Delta variant can infect the virus and put others at risk, even if they don’t feel too sick.


The NHS had listed the classic covid symptoms people should look out for as coughing, fever, loss of smell or taste. but these are now less common, based on data taken from thousands of people who record their symptoms on an app: Since the beginning of May, there has been recordings of most important symptoms of users through the app, and they are different from before.

The change in symptoms appears to be linked to an increase in the Delta variant, which was first identified in India and now accounts for 90 percent of Covid cases in the UK.


Fever is quite common but loss of smell is no longer among the top 10 Symptoms:

This variant seems to work a little differently. People may think they have caught some kind of seasonal cold and spread the virus to other people as they move on with their lives. If you are young, you may get milder symptoms. It may sound like a bad cold, but stay home and get tested.

More than a million people in the UK, where the Alpha or UK variant is predominant, found a wide range of additional symptoms linked to Covid.

In addition to classic symptoms, effects such as tremors, loss of appetite, headaches and novelties may also appear, researchers say.
