Based on the results of the study, the most common characteristics that indicate a person is infected with the omicron variant of the Covid-19 infection are as follows:
1. Sore throat but no cough
A sore throat accompanied by a cough is one of the common symptoms when someone is declared infected with the Covid-19 virus.
But in the Omicron variant, the sore throat tends to be itchy, dry, even without coughing.
2. Muscle and joint pain
Reporting from the Gavi.org page, the first reports of Omicron symptoms in South Africa showed a reaction to lower back pain.
In addition, this pain also continues to spread to several other areas such as joints, and muscle pain (myalgia).
Another symptom of Omicron is fatigue so that the body becomes weak and even easily feels tired even though it is not strenuous activity.
These signs of fatigue are constant because they are usually felt by other variants of Covid-19 sufferers.
A painful headache accompanied by a fever like the flu is an inflammatory reaction that the body is fighting a virus.
In Omicron symptoms, this headache feels throbbing, pressured, and sometimes accompanied by a stabbing feeling of mild to severe intensity.
5. Don't lose your sense of smell
In the previous Covid-19 variant, infected patients will experience impaired sense of smell and taste.
But for the Omicron variant, it's the opposite. Patients do not lose their sense of smell and taste so they still feel normal as usual.

But, unfortunately, Vehicle Insurance can deny policyholders’ claims if your friend/family /driver is at fault for the accident or stolen car. Vehicle Insurance can deny your claim if your friend/family/driver were in violation of state law when the accident happened. One example of that would be driving without a valid license. Another is if you were driving while intoxicated.

How to save your electricity bill
To save on the use of electricity that you use, then you must know in advance what objects are consuming a lot of power. In addition to air conditioning, it turns out that water pumps, refrigerators, washing machines and computers consume large amounts of electricity. So don't be surprised if during WFH, your electricity bill swells. Once you know that, then you have to reduce the frequency of using the equipment. Turn off the air conditioner and lights during the day, and use them only at certain times. If you are watching TV, turn off the television when you are no longer watching it to save electricity.
Electrical power that is too large can cause a short circuit and fire, you know, friend.
Make sure your home has been covered by insurance to protect it from the risk of fire that may occur. Contact us for questions regarding home protection from fire losses.
