The Omikron variant is also spreading rapidly in Germany. But what are the symptoms that indicate an infection? And what about the incubation period?
Berlin – In the beginning it was “only” the corona virus itself that turned almost everything upside down worldwide. Corona rules were introduced, pandemic protection measures decided and changed again and again. Then came the mutations and variants, especially Omikron persists in Germany and ensures a dynamic infection process. Accordingly, there are also a number of things to consider in the context of the Corona variant.
You can find out how long the incubation period for an infection with Omikron is and which symptoms can indicate an infection here.*
In fact, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) had already commented on the incubation period at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis. At that time it was said that it took an average of five to six days before corona symptoms appeared. At that time, however, mutations or variants such as omicron* were not yet assumed. Omikron, on the other hand, now has the BA.2 subform, for which other symptoms and a different incubation period could apply than for Omikron itself*.
So that doesn’t make it any easier for science to gather valid information, even though a new omicron symptom is making the rounds after the corona infection*. It also becomes problematic in cases where an omicron infection does not even have to express itself in the form of specific symptoms. *kreiszeitung.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
