The chairwoman of the South African Medical Association, Dr Angelique Coetzee spoke to Republic Media Network on Thursday and said that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has mild symptoms and that the infected person does not suffer from loss of smell or taste.

“If you want to know if it’s Omicron, if you can’t distinguish it from the Delta variant with the symptoms, you can go with a PCR test. But you can tell with the symptoms,” Dr Coetzee said.

When asked about how Omicron symptoms are different from the Delta variant, Dr Coetzee said, “Delta variant will give you loss of smell and loss of taste with the blocked and stuffy nose, fever, elevated pulse rate and lower than normal oxygen, whereas in Omicron oxygen stays normal, very very slight increase in pulse rate if any, no loss of smell, only scratchy throat and generally not feeling well for a day.”
